The Art Effect helps the youth in the Hudson Valley explore, experience, and excel in the arts, introducing them to visual arts and media, giving them the opportunity to develop real skills in these fields, and guiding them towards achieving their academic and career goals. Our progressive, dynamic classes and programs encourage youth to develop their artistic voice to shape their futures and bring about positive social change. In addition to offering programming during the school year, we offer camps and intensives over the summer for young artists from ages 4-19.
