YAP February Newsletter 2020

Open House

Thursday, February 13, 2020, 4 – 8 pm

Attention young artists and parents of teens who like art, Taller is enrolling now!

Space is available in Taller Puertorriqueño’s Youth Artist Program (YAP). YAP is our afterschool art program for high school students that prepares them with the tools to flourish in today’s creative economy. Through individual project-based learning and instruction from experienced artist mentors, teen artists realize their talents in a range of digital media and fine-art practices, from animation and illustration to drawing, painting, and printmaking.

Visit our studio to learn more. Come to our open house for art demonstrations, activities, food, and more.

The event is free and open to the public.

Free parking is available in the rear of the building.

The building is wheelchair and ADA compliant.

Field Trip:

Site visit Usala Radio Station 2310 American Street Philadelphia, PA 19133

Saturday, February 15, 2020

Time: 12 – 2 pm

YAP is looking to create its own podcast, and we are going to visit a local radio station to learn a little more about how it can be done. Please join us on our first field trip of the year to Usala Radio. 

USALA’s mission is to provide an independent media hub where community members can hear their own voices – where their values, interests, and issues important to them come to life. Understanding that open dialogue, brainstorming solutions and becoming socially responsive are central components of empowerment and raising consciousness.


3 Kings Animation Project: YAP is still looking for people to work on this project. If interested, please speak with Mr. Danniel about joining the crew of animators. 

Julia de Burgos Project: YAP is creating a book chronicling the life of Julia de Burgos and looking for some artists to create portraits of the famous Poet and writer.
