    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is YAC for?

    YAC is for young people aged 11 to 17 and our over 18 club is 18 – 30, Arty or not!

    We have all sorts of young people attend our sessions. Shy Arty kids, loud confident fashion-focused kids. Young people with mental health struggles, social struggles and neurodiverse. We welcome everyone.

    Where is YAC held?

    Youth Art Connect is held in Newquay. We do not have a fixed venue so please always check the event information or facebook before setting off. One day we hope to have our very own space, but for now we are happy to share.

    When is the next session?

    Our Newquay sessions tend to be the last Saturday of every month, but the best place to check is our Facebook page.

    Who looks after my child?

    We always have at least 3 or 4 volunteers per session. Our Volunteers are all DBS checked and safeguard trained. Siobhan and Marie are also first aiders and mental health first aid trained.

    Do I need to stay with my child during the session?

    No, unless you want to. We have enough Volunteers to watch over all 20 young people in a session.

    How much is a session?

    Each group costs us £350 to run. That’s a lot of money.

    If we charged each person attending to cover all those costs, that would be around £8.75 per person. In today’s terms that itself isn’t much but we know that sum would not be affordable for many families; which is why we ask for a minimum of £1.50.

    Do I need to bring anything with me?

    No, unless you want to. We provide all art materials you could possibly need and drinks and snacks.

    We advise not wearing your coolest, whitest outfit and things can get messy sometimes.
