Youth Activities History and Procedures

The Allegany Arts Association is a non-profit (501c3) organization founded in 1982 to promote local participation in the arts. Supported by our members, donors, grants, volunteers, and advertising sponsors; one of our main goals is to offer FREE art programs to local youth. Your participation, either by hosting a site or teaching a class, lets students experience fine art right here where they live.

The majority of our FREE youth activities occur during local academic breaks when children and parents may benefit most from exploring these creative opportunities. With consideration for the needs of local residents, the availability of instructors, and a public location; we work with host sites and schedules to fit the needs of each community. To keep cost at a minimum, free space or donated space is best and must be open to the public. Private property is not permitted for program use.

Instructors are paid an hourly rate for instructional time and reimbursed for cost of materials. Prep time and clean up are documented as In-Kind hours. A Class Outline, age range for students and target number of students should be provided. Classes could include drawing, painting, printing, book art, collage, music, creative writing & poetry, movement and so much more.
Please contact any board member if you would like to find out more about these programs.
