Revitalizing Youth Art Exhibition
Revitalizing Youth Inc, was created in February of 2016 with the intent of uplifting the poorer communities within the Chicago area. The goal of Revitalizing Youth, is to become a Youth Center within the Chicago area. We are looking to house the Youth Center in the South Shore community.
Currently, Revitalizing Youth Inc is offering a arts program to the Chicago Public Schools. We are offering classes such as our five-week mini mural workshops, as well as our tap dance classes with master tap dancer Jimmy Payne, Jr. At the beginning of February 2016, we will also be offering photography lessons to the students within city schools.
The arts, are being taken out of the schools. And, RYI would like to make up for this by creating a facility that will allow the youngsters, to excel in activities that aren't offered within the communities.
Skills related to Agriculture, Culinary Arts, Media, African American History, Education, and Job Skills will be implemented. The ultimate goal, is to assist all parties within the African American family.
During the last few months, RYI has linked up with hundreds of artists across the country, and several artists are willing to help support this exhibition by creating beautiful paintings that will be auctioned during this event.
During this exhibition, we will be celebrating several African American greats. All were born here in the Chicago area, and each individual did many great things in their lives.
Revitalizing Youth Inc. will use this event to celebrate their achievements, with hopes of inspiring the children whom are participating in the exhibition.
The children whom create art during the after school programs, will showcase their work also. We will showcase several pieces, and those will be auctioned to raise funds for the youth facility.
The goal is to secure a location within the next two years. This event, will allow others to learn more about Revitalizing Youth, introduce emerging or unknown artists to the community, as well as inspiring the youth with visual arts.
There will be live music, and vendors whom are looking to introduce their products to new consumers. It will be an amazing event, and definitely a night to remember. I would love to see you there!
