New Providence Recreation and TryCAN are partnering with Arts Unbound to provide classes in graffiti and wearable art to kids with special needs, ages 8 to 15. Students will explore the world of graffiti, street and wearable art, learn the roots of the movements, observe the techniques of current street artists, and create their own street art identity using a variety of mediums, including markers, pencils, paints, stencils and fabrics. All materials will be provided.
Six classes will be held on consecutive Thursdays from 4:30-6:00 PM at the New Providence Municipal Center’s art room beginning on April 26 for $50. There are no residency restrictions. Peer mentors will be provided as available.
This program is offered at a significant discount thanks to a generous grant from the United Way of Summit, New Providence and Berkeley Heights.
Arts Unbound is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing arts education, skills building and a variety of vocational opportunities in the visual arts to people with disabilities.
