ProjectArt Gears Up For New Innovative Summer Program for Kids Passport to the Arts
Student Exhibition and Open Houses:
· Saturday, May 19, 12-3pm
· Saturday, June 16, 12-3pm
ProjectArt announces its new, innovative summer program for kids, Passport to the Arts, a signature summer visual arts program for ages 4-7 years and 8-12 years, July 2- August 10. This distinctive program offers an unprecedented opportunity to create, learn and experience visual arts for kids. Through Passport to the Arts, kids will acquire a world-view of the arts, while improving their artistic skills by participating in an array of visual arts classes. In each session, kids are exposed to different art movements and skills, exposing them to the eclectic visual vocabulary and history of the arts - from the renaissance to digital arts. Sessions include: World of Art, Art-isms and Design is Everywhere. The artistic journey will open their minds, hearts - and hands to arts from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Europe - with a special feature on the beauty in our own backyard, the Harlem Renaissance. For more information on Passport to the Arts, please visit projectonlineonline.org.
To get a taste of Passport to the Arts and to see current students' artwork, ProjectArt (formerly named Adarsh Alphons Projects) invites families, students, educators and art enthusiasts from all over NYC to Open House, Saturday, May 9 and June 16 from Noon to 3pm.
