Student show celebrates national Arts Education partnership - July 23, 2013

The Right Brain Initiative and the King School are showcasing young student photography at the North Portland Library this summer.

 

The Right Brain Initiative is a partnership among public school, local government, foundations, businesses, and the cultural community.  The program, managed by the Regional Arts & Culture Council, works to transform learning for all children through the arts, creativity, innovation, and whole-brain thinking.

 

The library will showcase black-and-white images of local first and second graders and their neighbors.  All of the artwork was done by students at Northeast Portland's King School.  King was selected for the Turnaround Arts initiative, a public-private partnership of the President's Committee for the Arts and Humanities - chaired by First Lady Michelle Obama.

 

Stop by the library this summer to enjoy the artwork and learn more about the project!
