GSVA Youth Journey

Programs for 1st - 6th grade students.


The GSVA Youth Journey Program, for 1st to 6th grade students, is a three part chronological series composed of The Art of the Self-Portrait, DreamWorlds and The Ripple Effect. Each ten week series is a theme-based approach to building knowledge about and through the arts in a studio environment with art production in various mediums. As an end event, each young artist collaborates in designing, installing, curating and hosting an exhibition of their own work.

Read each Journey series description for a full understanding of what the three part series Journey Program entails.

The Art of the Self Portrait
First in a three-part foundational series designed for students to open their imagination and explore their own unique thoughts and ideas about themselves.  The series is centered on the theme of the self-portrait, which allows students to examine many different and unique dimensions of their identity,


Youth Journey, DreamWorlds
During the second part of our foundational series, GSVA students begin to focus on the many rich dimensions of their imaginations. They are encouraged to draw upon their daydreams and fantasies as subject matter in their now more abstract artworks. Students will work on developing their own artistic style.


Youth Ripple Effect
The Ripple Effect concept enables collaborative young minds to pursue relevant social issues and topical concerns in a visual way.
