New Sense


The mission of New Sense Studios is to engage, support and inspire area youth through artistic expression. We believe in art as an outlet for young people to communicate their ideas and passions. We seek to instill a sense of pride and ownership in youth through public display of works in the community.

Our History

New Sense Studios was developed in 2008 by a group of N.C. State Caldwell Fellows at the request of Mike Reider, the founder and then director of Haven House. What began as a vision has developed into a functioning program led by students and guided by community partners. We offer the youth we serve an opportunity to engage in artistic expression while learning new skills. Our student volunteers are given the chance to give back to the community in which they live, while using art and design as a means of social change. Now we are based out of the College of Design at NC State University as a student organization, and work with the Boys and Girls clubs of Wake County while upholding our mission.
