Saturdays are for the Arts!
In a world where the arts are being abandoned in school curriculums, The Young Artists’ Academy (YAA) provides weekly classes in the arts for children from underserved communities in Denham Springs.
Our qualified instructors teach visual arts, performing arts, and culinary arts.
This is the best place to be at 8AM on a Saturday morning during the school year!
The children have a number of opportunities to perform for the Greater Baton Rouge and Denham Springs communities each school year, including singing with the Denham Springs Gospel Choir at our annual gala!
Free and Affordable Classes in The Arts
Children from the ages of 5-18 can take our classes in the arts.
To see what classes are coming up and have a child you know participate follow the YAA Facebook page.
Our classes are open to everyone in the Denham Springs and the Greater Baton Rouge community.
The kids have a variety of opportunities to performfor live audiences throughout the year.
The Young Artists’ Academy finds qualified experts who volunteer their time to teach the arts.
One year, the children set up a booth at the Mattie Street Art Market to sell their art.
They were joined by several kids in our after-school program, The LANDers.
Together they set up a booth, negotiated prices, and walked around advertising their artwork to the public.
They had a blast and they learned a ton of valuable skills.
