This Summer, I was very fortunate to collaborate with amazing fellow artist-educators Jeannette Rodriguez-Pineda and Tajh Rust (and Jason Yoon, Director of Education) on the inaugural Summer Youth Arts Project at Queens Museum.
Working closely with these two educators over the course of 6 weeks, we led a group of young artists, all Queens middle school students, on an exploration of the art and artists on view at Queens Museum as well as the surrounding Flushing Meadows - Corona Park and other cultural institutions in Queens. We also guided the students to conceive, develop, and realize independent art projects inspired by and informed by our conversations, interactions, and studies. Their final independent projects will be on view at Queens Museum.
Here's a look at our Summer!
It has been an incredible honor to work with our young artists this Summer and I am so excited to celebrate them at our Opening Reception on September, 12. Join us!
