Art In Your Space engages teens with hands-on art and technology projects for professional clients in modern workspaces to prepare them for success in 21st century careers.
We facilitate learning of basic programming skills through an interactive design process driven by student interest and client demand. By building prototypes, presenting to clients, and refining projects, students are able to apply these new skills and knowledge in a professional context.
Students gain an understanding of artistic careers by working side by side with artists on projects for a public audience. AIYS not only provides an outlet to express students' creativity, but also the knowledge of how to make art a financially beneficial pursuit.

Students take on the role of designers in our classes and learn design process by doing. Students work in teams to interview clients to gain insights, sketch and build solutions, and use digital design programs to create finished projects.
