Spend your Summer with YAV!
Through the camps, resident artists combine the arts with educationally relevant material to instruct students on topics such as how art historically changed the path of our communities or how they can go toe-to-toe with Albert Einstein as they learn to draw freely on their own imagination through concepts such as momentum, force and chemistry. Stay tuned to YAV’s website for updates on the upcoming summer camps.
