NORWALK, Conn. -- The Rowayton Arts Center partnering with Family & Children’s Agency will hold an art show to display the work of children in its Expressive Arts Class.
The six-week after school art program offered students the opportunity to study visual arts and enhance their personal expression.
The exhibit, which will be open from Nov. 1 through Nov. 8, to show art created by these select students at the Rowayton Arts Center.
The show is open to the public.
“It is amazing to see the impact of exposure to the arts in the young people we work with,” said Jennifer Barahona, director of Youth Development at FCA, in a statement. “Time and time again, we witness the power of visual and creative arts in drawing out a young person and developing self-esteem. That kind of social and emotional learning is priceless. We have kids who are like whole new people in the hour they are in the art program.”
