How to bring the ArtsMobile to your next community event?
ArtsWestchester, with major support from White Plains Hospital and Con Edison, announced the launch of the ArtsMobile in Westchester County this year. ArtsWestchester’s new ArtsMobile, a colorful RAM van custom-fit with all kinds of art supplies, will bring free arts programming to children and audiences of all ages outside the traditional classroom or studio setting.
ArtsWestchester CEO Janet T. Langsam explains, “The ArtsMobile is an entirely new concept for us – – one that allows us to bring creative, collaborative arts activities to Westchester youth and their families, where they live. It is also an extension of our 35-year commitment to arts education currently bringing art-making workshops to schools and after-school programs.” Langsam continues, “Our partnership with White Plains Hospital and Con Edison recognizes that art-making is a healthy pursuit and one that enlivens our communities.”
The ArtsMobile will allow professional teaching artists, including Barry Mason, Miguel Cossio and Vicky Youngman, to bring hands-on art workshops designed to spark imaginations and encourage creative expression into neighborhoods providing arts activities to those who have little or no access to the arts.
From April through October, the ArtsMobile will be scheduled to take its artists and mobile arts programming to White Plains Housing Authority sites, Westchester festivals, neighborhood parks and community events. Workshops, that will take place outdoors, around the vehicle, will include, but are not limited to: print-making, ceramics, painting, botanical drawing, landscape drawing, and mask-making.
