The 4th Annual SCO/Family Dynamics Art Auction & Cocktail Party held on April 28th supports the Visiting Artist Program at Family Dynamics, which provides art instruction by two professional artists in an after-school program for children and teens living in the high-need neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. To date, students have created striking self-portraits, mixed media and collage style landscapes, sculptures and stagecraft all with discarded materials. As their contribution to the Auction, students will create and donate for auction a large collage depicting a horse from “Jane’s Carousel” at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
SCO Executive Director Gail Nayowith says: “Our Visiting Artist Program gives children who might not have the opportunity otherwise a chance to express themselves creatively, to learn new skills and to grow as artists and individuals.”
Family Dynamics, a program of SCO Family of Services, is committed to protecting children and strengthening families. Based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, and Brownsville, Brooklyn, Family Dynamics reaches thousands of children, youth and adults with after-school & summer school activities, workforce readiness, family support services and the arts.
