An Arts Alternative

Should anyone be surpriseed that popular culture holds such a firm grip on teenagers? It’s all around. Unavoidable. A ten-year-old program in San Francisco offers kids an alternative – an art alternative. Art and Film for Teenagers “offers Bay Area teens Friday night art movie screenings; Saturday outings to galleries, museums and commercial films; group trips to the symphony, opera and ballet (often three or more times a week); dinner parties and picnics, and an opportunity for mingling with peers passionate about the arts – an antidote to adolescent isolation.”
