Our after school students from Hudson Guild returned to the Whitney Museum of American Art this week for a behind-the-scenes tour of Henry Taylor: B-Side.
This was their second ever visit to an art museum, following last week’s visit to the Ruth Asawa exhibition!
We are extremely grateful to volunteer docent Gay Young, who connected with our students on a personal level and offered engaging stories about the people depicted in Taylor’s paintings.
Of course, it wouldn't be art class without drawing time.
Students can’t wait to make a return trip soon. Thank you to our institutional partners and to CMA Resident Artist Maria D. Rapicavoli for making these field trips happen!
Maria's work at Hudson Guild is supported by the Emergency Arts Education Fund, which provides free arts education to NYC school communities whose art programs have been decimated by recent budget cuts.
Children’s Museum of the Arts’ three Residents Artists are currently implementing ambitious arts curriculum at each of our partner sites throughout New York City: Hudson Guild in Chelsea, Sid Miller Academy in Crown Heights, and Children’s Workshop School in the East Village. Come spring, our residents will showcase their students' work through exhibitions and installations across the city. Learn how you can support the work of our residents here.
