Each year, Fleisher teaching artists bring art education into classrooms throughout Southeast Philadelphia, to ensure that children who face barriers getting to our studios can learn art and practice self-expression in their own neighborhood spaces. Today, we want to help children practice self-expression at home, and we’ve asked families about what they need:
“Please offer my children some creative inspiration and a diversion from all their anxiety.”
“My daughters are really enjoying the drawing tutorials on YouTube. However, I wish they had more interactive art making experiences where they were encouraged to pursue their own vision under a teacher's guidance, rather than trying to copy something.”
Fleisher teaching artists are ready and excited to reconnect with their students online, and have created printed learning materials to deliver to families with limited digital access.
Your support will help us deliver Art Care Kits to families with limited resources, so that ALL children can practice self-expression and connected with their creative peers and mentors. Now more than ever, art has the power to connect us as a source of joy, resilience, solace, and purpose. Be a part of our effort to brighten the lives of young artists, and stop by #fleishercommunity on Instagram to see their artwork in coming weeks. Thank you!
