Tile Wall Project
BECOME A PERMANENT PART OF OUR NEW HOME
For more than 50 years, KCYA has been at the forefront of the arts education movement. Our new home at 3732 Main Street will allow us to expand our scope and reach out to even more children with the transformational power of the arts.
Help us honor our rich history and celebrate our exciting future!
Students, parents, board members, donors, teaching artists and friends...the Tile Wall Project is open to all who believe in the KCYA mission to engage all youth in the arts, promote creativity, and inspires success in education.
WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP
You can join with others in the community who care deeply about igniting creativity in Kansas City’s children and share your own creativity at the same time!
All funds raised through the Tile Wall Project will be used to help provide program support and scholarships for economically disadvantaged students.
THREE WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
1. CREATE A TILE
Attend a workshop with teaching artist Jaime Lyon who will be on hand to help guide and inspire you as you create your individual tile.
Children 8 and under should have a parent participate in the workshop with them.
2. COMMISSION A TILE
Not available to make your own tile? Or not feeling very creative? We will find an artist to decorate a tile on your behalf. Your name or the name of someone you’d like to honor can be incorporated if you like.
3. SPONSOR A TILE
Underwrite a tile for a scholarship student. We want all of our young artists to have the opportunity to make their mark on our new space.
The tile wall will be installed in the new Family Lounge for everyone to see and enjoy for years to come!
