Your parents: could really use some down time, wanna know their kid is safe/productive/engaged.
Your pockets: have some lonely dollars, but just enough to get by.
Your interests: span the art continuum of pinhole photography, digital film making, break dancing, graffiti art, screen printing, art exhibition etc etc etc.
So, you get the picture, right? You need to run, not walk, to W21. There are loads of Day Programs, Workshops, afternoon classes, film screenings and events that no person under the age of 21 who really wants to get down with their creative self, should ever lack for opportunity in Santa Fe. Mentorship, an entrepreneur track, solid instructors and volunteers help create the community that supports the arts for young adults. In recent months, the center has had funding constraints as is the case for many non-profits. The problem, though, is the relatively small offerings in the arts, devoted to young adults. Just take a look at the reduction of days and hours, as compared to venues and art centers which serve adults in town.
And in the event you are thinking “hey, I’m (well) over 21, I’ll skip this destination,” I implore you to give the website a once over. While the target audience is obviously young adults under 21, classes, events and workshops are open to folks of all ages. (Though one might give a loooooong think to the idea of breakdancing at 59 with a bum knee, versus jumping into a screen printing class).
