Children naturally love all things art – painting, drawing, making music, the theater. Unfortunately when the Camden St. School had their budgets cut back, the arts was one of the first things to go. So we at art & eden, decided to step in and help as best we could.
The Abrons Art Centre is the performing and visual arts center of Henry Street Settlement. The Abrons Arts Center supports the presentation of innovative, multi-disciplinary work; cultivates artists in all stages of their creative development through educational programs and serves as an intersection of cultural engagement for local, national, and international audiences and art-workers.
The Camden Street School kids did an exhibition tour called Conspiracies Are Things. They delighted in the air space artist talk and studio tour. Their afternoon was spent expressing themselves creatively creating their own masterpieces .The day ended in reflection.
For the art & eden team, that day marked one of the months highlights, as we were able to do something that really mattered and provide a learning experience to the kids that they had not had before.
