The Wing Luke Museum’s YouthCAN program works to connect API youth to their heritage, help them explore their identities as informed by social/political issues, and involve them in their community through hands-on art projects, developed and led by mentor artists.

YouthCAN is currently enrolling for the Winter session starting Jan 21, 2015. Fashion designer Malia Peoples will be on hand.

The Winter session will focus on fashion—teens will learn a bit about the apparel industry, and the labor and costs of fast fashion. They will also learn to use a sewing machine, meet fashion designers, visit showrooms, get the rundown on running a design business, and create a t-shirt from scratch.

The Teen Apparel Design Program runs from January 21 to March 27 on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

An info session is scheduled for January 10, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Registration is required. Register by contacting Minh Nguyen at [email protected] or by calling (206) 623-5124 x102.
