Art is Power a Speaker Series for youth, is hosted by the Solano County Office of Education Youth Development Services in partnership with Nature of Sound. The Speaker Series is a collection of workshops hosted by various local, state and national artists, each workshop will focus on a different forms of art. This year's theme is IGNITE, after each workshop a social media will be available for student participants to ignite their passion for art. Art forms include painting, hip hop and songwriting, photography, graphic design, and much more.

Workshops are designed to for middle and high school students of all artistic levels. Artists will talk about technique, process and about using art to further one's cause. Art can be a powerful tool and helps build resiliency, and resilient youth are less likely to partake in risky behaviors (such as using alcohol, tobacco and other drugs).
