We are excited to host Making & Memoir: Storytelling through Fibers taught by Hinda Mandell, on July 15 and 16. Making and Memoir is a two-day workshop intensive that stitches together personal writing with handcraft techniques.
We were delighted that so many people could join us for our first in-person Spring Social since 2019. It was wonderful to welcome friends and supporters back to our schoolyard and connect around our shared vision for the Eliot School.
This month, we're excited to offer a new workshop led by pioneering global artist, advocate, and educator, Adejoke Aderonke Tugbiyele. Tugbiyele is author of the children’s book Find Your Center, a coloring book of sacred geometric drawings based on Yoruba principles. She received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Hillier College of Architecture and Design at NJIT in 2002 and a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013.
We're still in February, but summer is on our minds. Registration for our Summer Program for Children is open! Each year we adjust our offerings in response to feedback. We also receive a lot of positives notes from families and youth.
“The NEA is proud to support arts projects in communities nationwide,” said NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson. “Projects such as the Eliot School’s strengthen arts and cultural ecosystems, provide equitable opportunities for arts participation and practice, and contribute to the health of our communities and our economy.”
