Young at Art: Artists Working with Youth at Risk.
Silha, Stephen
Like other states, Idaho faces increasing numbers of youth considered at risk for becoming a detriment to society. Some communities are looking to the arts as a way to help young people channel their energies positively. In 1993 and 1994, the Idaho Commission on the Arts wanted to test the idea that artists working with first-time juvenile offenders might be able to help them find their voice and connection to the community. Ten artists were chosen to conduct various kinds of community residencies working with small groups of students in classes, workshops, and public presentations. This document describes each artist's residency in brief. Concluding sections give guidelines and advice for designing and implementing similarly successful programs. (MM)
