Arts Expression & Burchfield Penny Art Educational Program

International artist LeRoi C. Johnson and local artist Jay Hawkins will help the youth explore their cultural feelings of art by placing them on canvas. In addition, the Burchfield Penny will provide sessions in which their docents are encouraged to use their unique skills, anecdotal and professional experience, and more to bring the museum and the arts to life for after-school participants. The collective goal is to inspire and ignite interest. The goals are to engage students with works of art that may resonate and parallel their own life experiences, provide positive experiences with adult role models, and gain self-confidence and public speaking skills.

These programs are made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Services Inc.
