From the first of a school year Saturday arts program for local students, building on the techniques and subject matter of Poughkeepsie native Thomas Barrett, Jr.'s art career. We're starting the year off with block-printing of a tote for students' art projects all year. Future projects use examples of Barrett's art as a starting point, including his playing cards, holiday cards, and repeat patterns (wallpaper).
This community arts program grows out of our collaboration with Christ Episcopal Church's Summer Camp and is made possible by the Abe and Ann Effron Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley and Stewart's Shops.
