In addition to the after school program, I teach a monthly paint class for families. The monthly paint class for families has become one of my all time favorite art education experiences. I have grown quite close to many of the regular families that attend and watched a lot of the kids grow into young adults and talented artists. (parents too!) All thanks to the Manchester Youth Service Bureau and their recognition of the importance of accessible arts in the community. Not only was I able to teach, but I was taught a lot during my many experiences. Having a significant impact on making me the teacher I am today.
Thank you to MYSB and all the families I have met along the way. Here’s to another year of creative collaboration and community enrichment!
