The Brant Foundation Art Study Center October 1st, 2017
Free Arts Day Inspired by Animal Farm
On October 1, 2017, The Brant Foundation will host its fourth annual Free Arts Day, in collaboration with Free Arts NYC. One hundred children from New York City’s Department of Homeless Services will hear directly from artists, Katherine Bernhardt, Sadie Laska, and Agathe Snow, and create their own projects inspired by works in the current exhibition Animal Farm.
Free Arts Days are a unique volunteer opportunity that pairs underserved elementary-aged youth 1 on 1 with volunteers for an afternoon of “mini-mentoring.” While working together to create art projects based on the day’s theme, participants are able to create meaningful connections with someone they might not otherwise meet.
At a Free Arts Day, our youth have the opportunity to develop their creativity and communication skills with a caring adult and to explore a variety of art materials and techniques.
