Young at Art (YAA)(Funded by PTA)

This visual arts enrichment program focuses on enhancing students’ creative processes and visual perceptions. The program utilizes numerous community resources in the Arts and trains very dedicated parent volunteers on a monthly basis. These parent volunteers bring the projects to life in each classroom by walking students through a series of easy, step-by-step instructions to allow each child to create the featured artwork themselves. The program explores the art of a variety of artists and art movements each year, using a variety of mediums. Every child will have one of its works displayed in the ‘Young At Art’ gallery during Pennekamp’s annual Open House.
