Multi-Arts, a non profit arts educational program of the Pioneer Valley, proudly presents an art exhibition of 3D CARDBOARD SCULPTURES made by the Multi-Arts children under the guidance of Titus Neijens, professional artist, illustrator, and the Multi-Arts art teacher. The children artwork will be exhibited at the central hallway of the Jones Library during the entire month of June. On Thursday, June 2nd, as part of the Amherst Art walk, Titus Neijens will be offering a demonstration of the creation process of 3D cardboard objects.
Multi-Arts cultivates a vibrant and stimulating working environment that nurtures children’ self-esteem and confidence. Children learn the value of hard, focused work and the joy of collective creation. Its Outreach Program connects the children creations with the community through permanent and rotating art exhibitions and open family art events, hence contributing to the vital and rich artistic life of the Pioneer Valley.
“A vital, nourishing & supportive forum for young ones to experience many forms of the arts. Through personal one to one appreciation & instruction by true artists in the fields I saw tremendous stretches of ability, confidence & skill take place in a few short weeks.” Parent, 2015
During the program children work daily with a faculty of 7 professional artists with teaching experience, assisted by highly educated teaching assistants. They participate in all the artistic activities and work on integrating them into a single production. The activities include theater; creative writing; music; art –which involves not only painting and exploring different materials and techniques, but also book making and cardboard animals creation; custom and stage design; black-light-theater and mime; and flamenco and funk dance.
Multi-Arts SUMMER PROGRAM starts on June 20 and goes until August 12. There children can learn the art of 3D CARDBOARD SCULPTURES and much more. Visit website at multi-arts.org
