Art for Change Children’s Art Studio is a fun, hands-on community arts workshop program for youth and families to create art together and continue East Harlem’s rich cultural traditions! Art for Change collaborates with dedicated artists and educators to lead a new art project on the first Saturday of every month, free and open to the public, as well as for community events and student groups. Workshops draw on themes of cultural heritage, diversity, empowerment, and embracing change to strengthen critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, bridging cultures and inspiring positive change in individuals and communities along the way.
