Art Start

In the spring of 1991, a handful of artists came together to make art with homeless kids in New York City. Over the next twenty-four years, Art Start has become an award-winning, nationally recognized model for using the creative process to save lives and transform communities. Through daily creative arts workshops, Art Start connects with youth who are living in homeless shelters, involved in open court cases, navigating teen pregnancy, or surviving with parents in crisis. Though they face many obstacles, Art Start youth have dreams that far surpass their circumstances. Art Start provides kids with opportunities for success by giving them tools, structure, support, and most importantly, a chance to be heard.

Who cares if the weather is warm! 'Tis the season for making awesome snow globes at the South Street Seaport! And people's designs were so diverse: traditional Christmas trees and snow people contrasted with Sadness from Inside Out, Elsa from Frozen, and Raphael from TMNT. What a beautiful day to play in our own snow!
