Reaching In Reaching Out Outreach Program Greenwich Art Society

 

The Greenwich Art Society is a 501(c)3 corporation

As part of an initiative to reach an audience of under-served students in the greater Greenwich area, GAS is partnering with Mary Newcomb, the Founder of a new, innovative arts enrichment program called Reaching In & Reaching Out. Each session is designed to integrate art, live music and art history. This multi-sensory approach fully engages each student. Their learning is also heightened by having real working artists & musicians as teachers in the G.A.S. art studio environment.

Mary and her staff ran a very successful pilot program here last year with a class of second graders from Barnum Elementary in Bridgeport, CT. The head of Visual Arts for the Bridgeport Board of Ed personally selected the class for this inaugural program and buses were provided by the Board of Ed! The program was recently awarded a grant from the Outreach Foundation at Christ Church in Greenwich.

Mary has been a GAS member-artist since 2006 and serves on the GAS Board of Directors, as Co-V.P. of Classes

"The 2nd Grade Students at Barnum School have visited the Greenwich Art Society twice this year. The students love their time with Mary and her staff and they learn the wonderful connection between art and music. They are challenged to think at higher levels and are able to apply their thinking when creating their beautiful projects. We truly appreciate this opportunity!"
