Anthropology Arts is an enrichment program that provides unique arts based cultural studies classes to youth across New York City. Our goal is to expose young people to the cultural traditions, voices and histories of people that are often left out of traditional classroom settings and social studies curriculum.
Our team of progressive educators seeks to foster youth exploration and build a sense of community with each unique group we work with. We build our own culture and ensure that kindness and tolerance are at the forefront of everything we do. Youth voice and choice are central to every activity.
Our arts based activities are always process over product, giving youth space to problem solves and create their own work. Educators guide youth to find their own answers and determine how they want to work with materials available.
Our classes rarely have issue with behavior and we know this has to do with the DNA of our classes. Not only are youth highly engaged in project work but they feel a sense of belonging and safety in the class. We are totally strength based and #ProWeird and #ProNerd all day.
