NORWALK, Conn.— For the third consecutive year, the Rowayton Arts Center partnered with Family & Children’s Agency in Norwalk to promote creative expression through the arts with a six-week class for ASPIRE middle school students.
The student's artwork has been unveiled at the Art Center and will be on display for the public until Nov. 12.
“The Rowayton Arts Gallery offers our students a positive art experience that teaches both technique and self-exploration,” said Amy Jeffereis, ASPIRE manager. “Having the opportunity to see their art hanging in gallery and talk about their work strengthens their confidence and self-esteem.”
The Family & Children’s Agency seeks to improve the lives of Norwalk youth by increasing their ability to be productive, independent young adults. The ASPIRE program is FCA’s after-school program, located on the Norwalk Community College campus, and includes a middle school, high school and summer enrichment component.
In addition to academic support, students in the ASPIRE program participate in electives throughout the school year. It is a multi-faceted, program that promotes academic success and positive youth development.
For more than 50 years, the Rowayton Arts Center has been a community cultural hub that provides a welcoming environment for the exchange of arts-related ideas.
Located on the banks of the Five Mile River, the Arts Center hosts exhibitions, lectures, musical events and other activities. In its second-floor studio, RAC offers year-round classes and workshops for creative people of all ages and at all ability levels. RAC also underwrites arts education programs throughout Norwalk.
