Art Sphere Inc. participated in The Lights on After School Programs, which were sponsored by six partnering organizations at Wharton Square Community Center. The program sought to bring national attention to the need of federal funding for after school programs.
Students also learned about the importance of citizenship by signing and collecting petitions which were sent to Washington, DC to advocate for after school programs for youth. Both Republican and Democratic parties agreed on the necessity of this issue!
Students from multiple recreation centers were brought together to share their favorite art projects and teach one another. Cambodian-American youth taught African-American youth how to do origami. Latino youth shared projects related to Day of the dead and African youth taught mask-making.
