About Youth Program

About STEMarts@Paseo youth program

The STEMarts@The PASEO Youth Program provides educational programming for our youth built around The PASEO festival and its visiting artists.  We bring local, national and international artists into the schools and we bring students to the festival for engaging STEAM experiences such as classroom workshops, online curriculum tools, artist talks or internship opportunities.

Our Youth Program allows students to collaborate with festival artists exploring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in their art making process. Students learn valuable STEAM skills through creative expression, social practice and collaboration. We believe that the challenge and potential of STEAM education is for all students to have access to the latest technologies and 21st century thinking, especially in rural areas with limited access. The PASEO is the perfect platform for local students and teachers to use these tools to play, explore and imagine a better world.
