The Project 16
mission is to equip and inspire youth ages 10-16 to realize the broad spectrum of educational paths and career options available to them beyond what they may see in their immediate surroundings. Through our programs and community partnerships, we seek to offer up close access, eye-opening experiences and educational tools to help children and teens aspire higher than their circumstances, and to dream big.
Creative Camps for the Arts
We believe that exposure to art helps improve creativity, confidence, visual learning and focus. This program provides on-location arts teaching and exposure from professional artists in the areas of dance, theater, music, drawing and painting and more. Participants will also experience afterschool field-trips to Dallas-Fort Worth's major points of interest in the Arts District and surrounding landmarks including the Dallas Museum of Art, The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, the Dallas Children's Theatre, Fair Park Music Hall, the AT&T Performing Arts Center and much more. Through exposing teens to these areas of interest around Dallas, we hope to light a match that will spark the flame of their own discovery of expression through the arts. Help us continue providing artistic outlets for our youth.
