Hunters Point Family believes that arts education is an innovative way to extend learning beyond the classroom. Youth participating in Everything Arts! are responding strongly to education through the arts and our venue for positive emotional and creative expression. .
Everything Arts! is provided weekly through the HPF youth development programs (GIRLS 2000, Bayview Safe Haven, Peacekeepers, Gilman Rec Connect) and offers the following:
- Dance classes and performances
- Music composition, production and recording
- Mural classes and projects
- Journalism classes
- Film development and production
Everything Arts! projects have won awards at the Sundance Film Festival and the Museum of Modern Art.
Over the years, HPF youth have formed record companies, published books, appeared in small roles in major motion films, competed in national dance competitions and created many community beautification projects.
