The Community and Family Arts program creates a safe and supportive environment for 5-12 year olds and their families to be creative and to build social and emotional skills through working collaboratively on artistic projects. 

YAYA Community Arts is a Central City outreach program, which was supported by the Institute of Mental Hygiene during its pilot in 2016. YAYA continues to provide community and family visual arts programming through the support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
