Last Saturday we had the second part of the Trash-Can Abstract-Art workshop with Laura Alvarez.
The first session was focused on learning about how Abstract Art started and different types of it.
The second session was practical. We took the plain metal trash cans and created abstract designs to decorate them. Now they are ready to be used by WHEDco in their street fairs and festivals. They will help to keep the community clean and tidy.
Thank you to everyone who participated, it was fun and very educative!
We would like to say thank you to everyone who attended our Paint the Night Away Party-Spring Version at the Bronx Beer Hall. We had a blast!
We are grateful for your contribution! Your support will help us make our free programming possible for the community! We are on our way to Bringing Art to Every Household during the Summer and Fall!
Thank you Paul, Anthony and the Beer Hall crew! Additionally, we would like to thank DJ Eddie B Swift for the amazing and incredible vibe and dancing tunes!
