ProjectArt: After school art classes at NYPL

It was great to meet Adarsh Alphons founder of ProjectArt, at the Pulse New York Contemporary Art Fair last week.  His mission is to bring art classes to children in areas where their schools do not have a budget for art. ProjectArt, provides free after school art classes at many New York Public Library branches.  No child should lose their art classes because of education budget cuts.  This is a reality in many public schools. ProjectArt is popping up in many NYPL branches as the word is getting out.  Adarsh was thrown out of school for drawing in class when he was just 7 years old.   He turned that experience into a life long passion and love for art.  He simply put it, "Art saved my life."  Go on to the ProjectArt site and donate your time, skills or help fund this project.  It's already making a difference with our kids. top
