Go Make Something Kids!
Go Make Something Kids! is a youth-centered, creative arts program meant to engage and expose students to real-world learning while equipping them with tools, skills, and resources that are pivotal to their personal and professional growth and development.
In partnership with the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), the program offers in-school workshops where students explore different facets of artistic endeavor, including photography, poetry, painting, and creative entrepreneurship. Each student creates original works that are displayed in a culmination art exhibition. This is a unique opportunity for students to present their work in a professional art environment and offers them an introduction to the vibrant arts community of Long Beach.
