HOUSTON, TX–Feb. 10, 2018–City ArtWorks and Education Unbound partner to offer free Spring Break art classes to 30 children from low-income families who are recovering from Hurricane Harvey. Art classes help develop skills beneficial in school, work, and life. Spring Break art classes take place at the City ArtWorks Studio. Spring Break classes start Monday, March 12 and end Friday, March 16. Classes occur 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Children from families directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey may join a special class “Wild Weather – Majestic Skies”. Trained and experienced teachers provide art curriculum and lessons focused on weather. Children have the opportunity to express their feelings about the changing weather through art. The art camp gives children a safe place to explore their thoughts and reactions to the storm that had such a significant impact on their lives.
Children who show proof of free lunch certificates and whose homes flooded are welcome at no charge. Register online at www.cityartworks.org. City ArtWorks embraces the opportunity for collaboration with other organizations in Houston. If you are interested in exploring a partnership with City Artworks please contact us.
