I am currently working with Professor Therese Tardio
, and partnering with Building New Hope
, to establish an arts education resource center in Granada, Nicaragua. We will work with local teachers, students, families, and artists to create a community-involved art center. The goal of the center is to provide assistance and guidance in funding, curriculum, and creative sustainability, for a small community of schools that have limited resources for education.
There will be an art exhibition to benefit the center:
When: Friday, May 30, 2008 7:00pm
Where: YIV Coffeehouse and World Lounge
, 4130 Butler Street, Lawrenceville
The event is free; artwork will be for sale. Proceeds will benefit the arts education resource center and will go towards special artist workshops, materials, and local arts events for participating schools in Granada, Nicaragua.
