Through Growing Young Artists
“I've never painted before – this is the best day ever! I love art. When are you all coming back?" – Rolando, 4th grader in the “Growing Young Artists” program
This past summer we (12 young professionals + interns) brought our arts-infused Growing Young Artists program to more than 170 migrant students from Fennville and South Haven schools.
Working with Artist in Residence Sofia Ramirez Hernandez, the pre-K – 8th grade students developed a 7-act play, writing details for the script, building sets, creating costumes, and making life-sized puppets.
