Youth Expressive Arts Class
For the third consecutive year, the Rowayton Arts Center (RAC) has partnered with Family & Children’s Agency (FCA) to promote creative expression through the arts. The Expressive Arts Class is a six-week elective underwritten by the Rowayton Arts Center for ASPIRE middle school students. Students have the opportunity to study visual arts and enhance their personal expression. Their artwork was unveiled at RAC on October 29 and will be on display for the public until November 12.
Danny stands with his artwork, which is featured at the Rowayton Arts Center.
“The Rowayton Arts Gallery offers our students a positive art experience that teaches both technique and self-exploration,” Amy Jeffereis, ASPIRE Manager. “Having the opportunity to see their art hanging in gallery and talk about their work strengthens their confidence and self-esteem.”
Family & Children’s Agency seeks to improve the lives of Norwalk youth by increasing their ability to be productive, independent young adults. The ASPIRE program is FCA’s after school program, located on the Norwalk Community College campus, and includes a middle school, high school and summer enrichment component. In addition to academic support, students in the ASPIRE program participate in electives throughout the school year. It is a multi-faceted, longitudinal program that promotes academic success and positive youth development.
For more than 50 years, the Rowayton Arts Center (RAC) has been a community cultural hub that provides a welcoming environment for the exchange of arts-related ideas. Located on the banks of the scenic Five Mile River, the Arts Center hosts exhibitions, lectures, musical events and other activities. In its second-floor studio, RAC offers year-round classes and workshops for creative people of all ages and at all ability levels. RAC also underwrites arts education programs throughout Norwalk.
