Look at what’s happening now at YAYA:

Become a YAYA



We are accepting new applications for the YAYA Studio! Since the organization’s founding in 1988, the YAYA Studio has provided free after school visual arts and entrepreneurship training to area youth ages 13-16. Students learn the fundamentals of painting, glass, ceramics, and mixed media sculpture and create works for sale at the Gore Foundation Gallery, and other Art Markets. Students in the YAYA Studio also participate in arts business training via the IBERIABANK Business of Art Program, and work with YAYA instructors on commissions for public art and interior design.
