The Creative Connection: Arts and Youth Development
What is youth development as it relates to instruction in the arts? How do I incorporate principals of youth development in my instruction of an art discipline? The purpose of this workshop is to orient arts instructors to a youth development approach and its implications for working with adolescents. Youth development is not a new model of programming. Instead, it is an approach; a way of understanding and thinking about youth that serves to guide action and adds breadth to any youth-serving organization or program. This approach seeks to promote the overall development of young people by emphasizing and building upon their strengths.
