Arts Education

ARTs East New York University: KIDS (AENYU-K) program transforms the lives of young people ages 3–12 through world class training in the arts. AENYU-K stands unique among local arts institutions in the East New York community, as the sole provider of arts education in five disciplines (music, dance, theater, visual arts and fashion) under one roof. AENYU-K students learn how to present and perform their craft at events throughout the community as well as a dynamic end of year celebration. We currently offer Saturday Classes and Summer Camp.

Community Beautification



Installationz is dedicated to providing exhibition opportunities to local and international artists that in turn expose the residents of East New York to inspiring artwork. ARTs East New York’s Installationz project mounts a wide range of visual arts showcases within the context of community building and supporting East New York’s local economy. Our exhibitions have explored socially relevant themes including messages communicated by Hip Hop and the trend of street art being appropriated in gallery settings.
