Arts Passage XPress (APX)

"I was often scared about sharing my work with others.  Being in a group with so many talented people is inspiring.  I look forward to every class."



The Mind-Builders Arts Passage XPress program (APX) provides individual coaching and small group workshop training for ages 12-21 in Visual Arts (ANIME/MANGA) and Digital Studio Production. It also provides opportunities for students to socialize, invite guests, discuss/perform/present their works if they choose, through the popular "Freestyle Fridays" events. 

Skilled artist instructors create a learning environment that builds confidence, shares information on related careers, and promotes self reflection, empathy and understanding.  APX brings arts exploration, workshops that develop creative self-expression, and coaching for performance/presentations original solo, ensemble and hip-hop theatre open mic works.
