Help urban students apply art, marketing and business skills
This video was directed, edited and produced by Kaitlyn Stodola and Arts Street's elite student group.
The amazing Stella Yu and Arts Street are back with an innovative program engaging youth artists, and teaching them marketing skills that will promote successful futures! Stella needs your help to raise funds for art supplies and youth stipends so these exceptional young virtuosos in training can create artwork, market it, and sell it at the Arts Street booth during this September’s art festival in downtown Denver.
The Youth Artist Entrepreneur project at Arts Street will train 5 - 7 youth during August and September 2013 to produce visual art, outreach to other youth artists, manage exhibition and sales, marketing and PR of the upcoming "16th Street Mall Festival of Arts" on Sept 21, 22. As part of the Denver Art District on Santa Fe, Arts Street has a booth to showcase youth artists. Metro youth under 24 are encouraged to come and market their own work with no entry fees. The booth, Clothesline Art, will be easy for youth to participate.

An ant can lift up to 50 times its own body weight. A mouse can squeeze through a hole the size of nickel, sometimes even smaller. A single ladybug will eat more than 5000 aphids (a creature roughly ¼ its size) in its lifetime.
Stella Yu founded Arts Street to engage students in the arts, expression and freedom.
