Exciting New Pilot Project at AFK

This year at Artists for Kids, we’ve been running a wonderful new pilot program with Inclusion Works North Shore. This small group of Developmentally Disabled young adults are coming to the Artists for Kids studio once a week to create unique one of a kind works of art which they are selling at various locations.

In the fall this group of artists worked with art educator and Director of Artists for Kids, Yolande Martinello to create original prints using a variety of techniques. The group experienced relief printing, monotypes, and collagraphs. They created a series of Christmas and winter images which were reproduced into cards for the holidays. We heard that all the cards sold out which is very exciting.

This month the students are beginning mosaics. The project was launched with the creation of a trivet with a pebble mosaic and will continue for the next two months exploring other more complex mosaic works.
