Urban Artisans (UA) develops vocational skills in young adults. Students with and without disabilities learn transferable, pre-vocational skills through making, marketing, and selling artwork in a professional studio. The primary goal of the program is to help young adults, ages 16-22, transition from school to the workplace. The UA program is held in the ArtMix adaptive studios and received the 2015 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award recognizing it as one of the nation’s best creative youth development programs.
