A2O: Artists & Arts Outdoors | Mural Arts Program | 2016-2017 | Click to View Slideshow

In partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, A2O combined art education with environmental awareness for ages 10 - 14 in Philadelphia rec centers. I assisted teaching artist Lucy Pistilli with weekly classes and community events that offer creative exploration of the natural environment and engage students in playful, hands-on arts activities. Classes were based on the environmental theme and the voices and the ideas of the students. We worked with youth at Lee Cultural Center and Kingsessing Rec Center. I also had the opportunity to assist teaching artist Rebecca Schultz install her mural at Wright Rec Center. Read more about A2O from Project Manager Aislinn Pentecost-Farren here.
