Before and After

After-School Art Facilitator at The Claremont Neighborhood Center (2019-2020)

The Claremont Neighborhood Center is a resource center supporting local youth and community members within the Morrisania section of the South Bronx. As an arts facilitator at the center, I implemented after school art programming for local Middle and High school students. Activities included arts & crafts within various mediums, art history and trips to local cultural institutions in The Bronx. In December of 2019 I was awarded a grant from the DGT Foundation to activate and supply an underutilized classroom at the center known as the “Muhammad Ali Art Classroom”. With the funding, I was able to purchase art supplies for the students, book guest speakers and invited Bronx based Artists to showcase their work and to co-facilitate workshops.
