Company Description

New Urban Arts is a nonprofit art studio in Providence, RI.

We are a welcoming community of high school students and adult mentors sharing space, skills, and resources to inspire creative expression. Since 1997, we have served over 7,000 Providence teens and 200 artists. Each year, our public programs reach over 2,000 visitors and participants. We provide programs at two sites: our storefront art studio and nearby Central High School. Our core program, Youth Mentorship in the Arts, brings Providence public high school students together with local artists, building powerful mentoring relationships through the arts. Notably, the program is open-door, drop-in, and student-driven. Other programs include summer programs and post-secondary advising.
