New Alternatives for Children 11/08/14


We had a wonderful time with the New Alternatives for Children kids today! Thank you so much, Anelle Miller and Elana Amity of the Society of Illustrators for hosting. To Carin Berger for her beautiful demonstration and introduction to collage and illustration. To Louie Miranda and Materials for the Arts for giving all of the art supplies and guiding the activities so exuberantly. To our Ink Well volunteers: Ray Alma, Elana Amity, Joan Chiverton, Barbara Garrison, Tobie Giddio, Oded Naaman, Abby Merrill, Joyce Pedretti, Tim Savage and Elizabeth Winter for helping the kids make dioramas of batman in a box, cats in a cat house, an octopus emerging from the ocean, a flying wolverine and so much more. Thank you to Stuart Davis and the NAC staff for the incredible feat of encouraging and transporting 30 children to participate in this special day. And most of all to the children who patiently took our projects in and lifted them to a whole new level of creativity and imagination that left us amazed and inspired. We will be posting pics soon!
