The purpose of this qualitative research aims to investigate whether “at risk” youth and “mainstream” youth share commonalities in aspects of art making, art knowledge, societal concerns and personal interests. To gather this information, I observed and interviewed four students that participated in two different community art programs. The data gathered over three months of observations has been described and analyzed. Additionally, this study aims to find whether or not the shared traits of two populations can serve as evidence that multicultural and social reconstructionist education should be implemented within a community art program that accommodates both populations simultaneously?
