18 South Launches Open Studio Program

18 South Youth Center is now open four days a week with the launch of its Open Studio afterschool art program! Local teens can now come to 18 South after school on Mondays from 3-5 p.m. to experience a positive atmosphere where they can creatively express themselves. Admission is free and complimentary refreshments are offered, as well.

Thus far the offering has been well received with 10-15 attendees each week. This launch expands the youth center’s afterschool programming, which began in 2014 with the addition of a Study Hall program on Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m. Come September, 18 South plans to complete our afterschool offerings with the addition of our Grub Club cooking program on Tuesday afternoons.

During Open Studio, youth are generally able to freely dabble with a variety of art mediums using the supplies available at the center. Occasional group projects, such as our recent adventure in decorating paper coffee cups, will be made available, as well.
