ARTS AND LITARCY PROGRAM, BUSHWICK
The Arts and Literacy Program addresses the educational needs of Bushwick children by providing them with opportunities to create, think, communicate, and problem solve.
Program activities build literacy in the widest sense of the word through creative writing, the visual arts, media literacy, drama, photography, video, music, creative movement, Yoga, martial arts, and science through the arts.
It operates on school days between 2:40 and 6:00 p.m., and during the summer and school closing days from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The program also engages the children�s entire family through art therapy, family support, monthly family literacy workshops, ESL for parents, and comprehensive services available through the agency�s other programs. An apprentice program is available to neighborhood teens. The interdisciplinary curriculum builds upon the children's interests and strengths, using the same effective, holistic, multicultural approach, which is the hallmark of all of the Coalition's programs.
