Paint the World

Through this cultural enrichment program, YAYA artists serve as ambassadors while expanding their own cultural understanding and general education through travel. Paint the World broadens young artists’ horizons through personal and career growth, college exploration, paid art production projects, educational workshop partnerships, and cultural exploration.

Previous trips have taken YAYA artists to Ireland, New York, Paris, Poland, Chattanooga, the Florida coast, and San Francisco. As part of our ongoing mission and programming, YAYA strives to provide a travel opportunity for each new cohort of young artists.
