Virtual Spotlight: After School @ MMCC

We are thrilled to announce that Arts Horizons has truly gone national through our new virtual learning through the arts initiative – Arts Horizons at a Distance. AH Teaching Artist Jacqueline Arias is an Arizona-based digital photographer who is currently conducting a virtual livestream Digital Photography program for students in our longtime partner Mosholu Montefiore Community Center‘s after school program in Bronx, New York! Jacqueline’s project for the day was to create a special Black History Month-themed digital poster. Students had to select their favorite icon from Black History and a motivational quote by them or about them. Jacqueline then instructed students on how to use Pixlr, a free web-based photo editing app, to create their posters using layers. One student chose a particularly powerful quote by Jamaican activist Marcus Garvey while an MMCC staff member created a lovely poster of noted actress Lena Horne.

We are grateful to MMCC’s incredible support and partnership during these difficult times. We also appreciate their dedicated team of administrators and staff that works tirelessly to bring arts education and a variety of other vital social services to communities in the Bronx. Stay tuned for other updates from Arts Horizons at a Distance including more virtual spotlights of our distance learning programs!
