Urban Youth Literary Arts

The Urban Youth Literary Arts After-School Program works with schools and other organizations to offer free creative writing and interdisciplinary arts workshops.  The program consists of three main avenues of student engagement:

  1. After school community learning center hours, 
  2. Summer community learning center hours, and
  3. Summer inter-arts poetry camps.

Our programming seeks to intentionally strengthen inter-student and student-to-staff relationships. The overarching goal of everything we do is to help students become better at expressing themselves whether through writing, performing, or art. Community Learning Center staff, guest artists, teachers, Woodland Pattern staff and students all complete the same activities and share together to develop relationships and build a sense of community.
