The New Mexico Office of African American Affairs and Warehouse 508 have come together to teach kids that being an artist can be a viable way to live through a series of five workshops called Youth Engagement. Beginning this Saturday, April 15, kids from 11-20 can learn how to identify skills attained through hobbies that can be used for income. A lot of artistic hobbies are often regarded as “just for fun” when the skills learned can be used in many careers like therapy, marketing, graphic and interior design, just to name a few. The workshops cover hip-hop dance, financial literacy, poetry, t-shirt printing and social justice art. The dates following this Saturday's event are April 22, May 13 and May 20. These free workshops require a reservation—call Shaina Saint-Lôt at (505) 383-6215 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to put yourself or your child's name on the list, only 40 kids can join each workshop date—which lasts from 10am to 3pm.
