Our second visual arts program at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center in Manhattan is off to a great start this semester. Twelve children, ages 7-10, are actively engaged in creating art under the guidance of ATG Teaching Artist Michelle Hill. Through this studio-based learning program, students are able to explore new artistic vocabulary, learn how to use and care for high-quality arts materials, and learn to express themselves through concepts such as shading and perspective. This semester they are studying symbolism as inspired by Marc Chagall, and in November the class will be taking a field trip to The Jewish Museum to see the Chagall: Love, War, and Exile exhibit—a first-of-its-kind trip for ATG students!
Lowy’s Frame the Future program, which has generously sponsored this class for a second semester, is hosting an auction of student work from the first visual arts class at Lincoln Square, which took place last spring. The gala and silent auction will take place tomorrow night, October 30th, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Lowy Frame & Restoring Co. All proceeds will benefit future visual arts programs. We hope to see you there!
All Arts to Grow programs are made possible by the generosity of our donors. To help us bring the visual arts to more under-served children, please donate to the ATG/Frame the Future partnership today.
