Opening of Young Artist Apprenticeship Program exhibition "A Little Bit Higher"


The Young Artist Apprenticeship Program (YAAP) organized by Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston is a nationally recognized art-making workshop held each spring and fall for teenagers from neighboring Houston Independent School District high schools. Visitors to Blaffer will be greeted by large, colorful sculptures suspended from the ceiling and constructed of vinyl, straws and zip ties. Clusters of paintings and prints, along with drawings, sculptures and photographs, line the walls to create color harmonies and patterns.

The spring 2011 YAAP participants are Rogelio Coronado, Arturo Delgado, Liliana Dominguez, Michelle Glennon, Emily Hernandez, Nalleli Hidalgo, Yolanda McNeal, Christian Niño, Enrique Rodriguez, Jazmine Sanchez and Blake Walker. They are students at five participating high schools: Austin High School, Cesar Chavez High School, Eastwood Academy, Milby High School and Yates High School.
