Young Artists Academy

The Young Artists’ Academy (YAA) is a community non-profit offering free classes in the arts to children ages 5-18 in the Denham Springs and surrounding areas. Throughout the school year, children and youth from the Denham Springs area come together at Luke 10:27 Church and L.M. Lockhart community center to receive classes in dance, voice, guitar, drums, piano, and art with various performance opportunities. In return, at least one of their parents participates in either cooking, finance, or parenting classes. In addition, the children make up and participate in the first Denham Springs Gospel Choir.
