Morgan State University Museum

The Youth Art Institute provides an opportunity for youth who otherwise would not have the advantage of art-integrated education. In collaboration with the James E. Lewis Museum of Art, youth, parents, and educators receive art, performing and visual art instruction designed to improve academic performance, self-esteem, and provide meaningful cultural experiences.

Morgan State University students are trained on art-based infused activities and help with the Saturday program. The program therefore helps both under-privileged children with exposure to the arts and college students with the opportunity to learn to teach and mentor younger children in their community.
