Drawing Together at Red Hook Flea!!

K.I.D.S. Art Education kicked off our 2011-12 season with a Drawing Together program at Red Hook Flea- a fundraiser for P.S. 15, our neighbor and partnering school.  Teaching artist Meghan Keane invited participants to "Draw big. Draw Colorful." 

Using handmade stencils designed by Meghan and using all recycled materials, children and their care givers worked together to explore colors, shapes, and textures.  Surrounding the students there was music, dancing, food, crafts and dreamy ephemera as folks from the neighborhood sold their wares in a wonderful collaborative fundraising effort.

Thank you P.S. 15. Thank you participants.  Thank you Red Hook for your vitality, creativity and community spirit.

Next up?  Thoughts and images from our fall program built on our exhibition "MARKING SPACE.
A collaborative drawing, performance and sound project." by visual artist Lezli Rubin-Kunda and sound artist Ellen Moffat.
