We did it! The Equal Education Initiative has activated its first pilot program in cooperation with and funded by Community Solutions and The Brownsville Partnership!
We are currently guiding 8 children (ages 8-12) through a Five Week ArtCamp Intensive. Our Studio style lessons operate out of the MGB Pops outdoor location on Mother Gaston Blvd and also the Greg Jackson Center at 519 Rockaway.
I am assisting AOT Chief of Staff, artist, Ian James Carr as he leads our first roster of children through a discovery of conceptual ideas. The kids are responding to our lesson plan enthusiastically so far, we’ve even had parents who stay and participate as well!
The studio class will culminate with the making and reveal of another CS/BP mural project, created by TEEI students. This is an experience that no child will ever forget, and the inspiration they will draw from this project is endless, infinite—a lifetime of creative validation.
Follow us as we update you on the program and most importantly, the progress of our children!
