The After School Program begins on April 9 until May 14. We will meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for 6 weeks. Students will be picked up at their schools and returned to their homes courtesy of the LatchKey Kids Program who is also hosting the program at 280 S. Liberty Street in Winston-Salem. Snacks and homework assistance will be provided. We will be partnering with P.E.A.C.E Academy for this project which is made possible in part by grants from the Arts Council of WS/FC and the Winston-Salem Foundation
The program has started with students working with artist/teachers, Sam Pennington and Charlie Cook with Carolina Salgado assisting. The Urban League is graciously allowing us to use their space. During these first two weeks the students will concentrate on the “basics of art”. The hand-on mural process from design creation to on-site installation will occur during the final two weeks.
