BxArts Factory is proud to introduce to you our very first Artist in Virtual Residence, Lovie Pignata.
We received excellent proposals for the Nesting the Arts Project, and after a very competitive review, we selected hers for its simplicity and family friendly activities.
Together with Wonderfully Made we will begin this unique initiative on October 21st. Our very first Nesting the Arts Project (NAP) will run for two months and will connect the participating parents with their artistic side.
NAP is a unique initiative created by BxArts Factory to nurture the use of art at home. We’ve seen the impact of the Arts, its influence on creativity, empowerment, development of confidence and unification between generations. It's also known to improve communication and emotional connection among family members. Through a series of workshops, we will bring parents and children together to create art. Our hope for the program is to spark parent’s desire to nest the arts as part of their parenting legacy.
Join our Facebook Group Virtual Residency: Nesting the Arts Projects by BxArts Factory to receive updates on the project’s development and exclusive content!
