Ryman Arts
teaches teens essential skills for art and life in a rigorous, nurturing studio environment. The core program includes free out-of-school sequential studio courses that emphasize advanced drawing and painting skills, along with college and career planning. Courses, taught by professional teaching artists, foster students’ artistic development and personal confidence, and provide the knowledge they need to pursue higher education and careers in the arts. Ryman Arts is the only such program in southern California that is totally free and that selects participants solely on the basis of their ability and commitment. By doing so, Ryman Arts is able to serve talented youth from a wide variety of backgrounds without regard to their family’s financial status. Ryman Arts aims to inspire, nurture, and challenge the next generation of artists to reach their potential.
