The Full Story

Art Affects Teaches Students the Art of Painting

Middle school student Jeremiah

Team Leader Mr. Alonzo Malvarez hosted a Family Night for his middle school class at the Urban Youth Artisans Shop at CityPlace. Catherine Rich from Art Affects, helped run the event offering tips, tricks and supplies for painting pumpkins. All ages in the families who attended loved it and can’t wait to do it again!

This event was presented by Urban Youth Impact’s SMART program – Science Meets Art.

To see more artwork by our students, stop by SMART’s Urban Youth Artisans Shop the next time you are at CityPlace. It is open Wednesday – Friday 4-9pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 1-9pm.
