Community Outreach with PAL

"Before kids can go places, they need a place to go."

On November 14, Affirmation Arts hosts a gallery visit for children from the Police Athletic League Duncan Center's afterschool program. During this visit, children will explore the photographic exhibition, Hillman + Chavez.

Led by gallery director Marla Goldwasser, students will participate in an art lesson based on the New York City Department of Education Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. After an introduction to the artwork and an interactive discussion, the children will create their own photographic works of art.

The mission of the PAL Duncan Center is to provide a safe, fun and healthy environment for all children in their program. They provide recreational, educational enrichment, cultural, mentoring and socialization activities that help children to develop and grow as individuals, and become productive members of society.

This PAL visits takes place in correlation with Affirmation Arts' continued interest in community programming and arts education in New York City. For more information, please contact Clayton Flynn or Michael Allen.
