Yard School of Art Studio Programs and Financial Assistance

The new Access for All Financial Assistance Program is designed to reduce financial barriers to the arts for children and teens (5-19 years old) with disabilities and special needs. A sliding scale for reduced tuition is based on household income, number of dependants, and accessibility of funds. Information for all scholarship opportunities can be found here.

 

Sensory Sunday Studio

Sensory Sunday Studio is designed for families with members on the autism spectrum or who have other sensory sensitivities. Each month features a different project designed by MAM Teaching Artists that is accessible to artists of all ages and abilities. This program is a great fit for people who learn best in smaller groups in a controlled environment with extra support. Click here for more information.
