Program Overview: Art for Learning’s (AFL) Fresh StART program engages students in a school-based effort to improve their community through art. In a series of workshops, students and their families identify what they could do to improve their neighborhood or space. Students are encouraged through various art forms to share their thoughts about a particular topic. The students’ artworks in a form of, but not limited to, a story, dance, poem, sculpture, will serve as the inspiration for the final work produced by a professional artist.
Project Goal: To design and produce an outdoor installation that is inspired by the students’ personal narratives about kindness, empathy, and appreciation of differences. The artwork will be installed in a vacant area adjacent to the playground.
$3,320: all-inclusive fee for the artist fee, materials, production, cost of installation, travel and transportation, and other related expenses. 2/3 of the amount will be paid at the start of the project; final payment will be released upon completion.
