IS183 Art School Kids Create Show: A Learning Through Arts Showcase at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts in February!
IS183 Art School’s Learning Through Arts (LTA) after-school program brings professional teaching artists directly to Berkshire County’s K-12th grade classrooms, transforming the program sites into art studios, and sharing their passion for the visual arts through dynamic mixed-media projects. LTA gives students the freedom to experiment with advanced art techniques and mediums, create unique work, and find their voice through hands on visual arts experiences.
IS183 is excited to participate once again in the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival, showcasing the artwork of every student artist in our LTA program. The showcase will represent each of LTA’s program sites including nine elementary, middle and high schools across the Berkshires.
The soft opening will take place during First Fridays Artswalk, Friday, February 2nd from 5 to 8 pm, with the opening reception taking place on Thursday, February 15th, 2018 from 5 to 7pm at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts during the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival.
