Holiday Edition of Authors and Artists

For the December edition of the Authors and Artists Program, our little artists gathered at the Bushwick Library to create works anticipating the upcoming holiday. Jason Andrew read William Joyce’s vibrant storybook Santa Calls. The kids created their own version of cut-out Christmas trees and experimented with geometry to create personalized snowflakes.

Norte Maar invites local professional artists, dancers, craft makers, architects, etc, to teach and explore the arts with children and families in our Bushwick neighborhood.

Join Norte Maar one Saturday a month at the Bushwick Library in Brooklyn for our free children’s arts education program! Our next program will be January 14. For more information contact Jason Andrew at 646-361-8512.
