A new after-school art program for 7-11 year olds starts this fall at the Old Stone House in JJ Byrne Park in Park Slope: Art in the House! The program will use the American Revolution, colonial life, and the Park Slope/Brooklyn community as a springboard for "fun and funky hands-on art activities."
Kids in the program will work on painting, print-making, sculptures, and a weekly group mural. The last day of the program will be an art opening party for family and friends.
I am a fan of the arts, and my husband (the history teacher) is excited about using history as inspiration for kids' art... so please check it out!
Also, stay tuned for arts-related posts...
(yesterday, Baby ate some chalk at the playground, which is a start if nothing else)
