CMA’s Young Artist Kollective (YAK), is a free program that provides emerging young artists in 6th-9th grade with exclusive studio space and materials, artistic and technical guidance, opportunities to meet with guest artists, monthly art parties, and a chance to learn about professional opportunities across the art world.

In YAK Open Studio Hours, members get to pick a collaborative group topic, choosing from a list of available art mediums including screen printing, animation, fashion design, sound recording, and more. For those with their own project in mind, our teaching artists are here to provide professional materials, equipment, and mentorship.
