An evening to support arts education!
Thursday, June 9 | 1075 Prospect Ave, West Hartford | 5:30PM - 8PM
The Greater Hartford Arts Council invites you to our Summer Soirée at the historic and beautiful residence of Douglas and Tita Hyland, to support Neighborhood Studios, our arts education program for local teens. Mix and mingle as you enjoy sparkling wine, delicious food, and hear from special guest speaker Dr. Jane Best, Director of The Arts Education Partnership. Dr. Best has extensive experience working among practitioners, policymakers and researchers. Learn more about Dr. Best and The Arts Education Partnership below.
Why Support Neighborhood Studios?
During the six-week summer apprenticeship program, students receive hands on instruction in an artistic medium, as well as career skills training to prepare them for today’s creative workplace. Each apprentice also receives a weekly stipend so they don’t have to choose between a quality arts education and a summer job. Please help make their summer of arts education possible!
Online registration for the 2016 Summer Soiree how now closed, but tickets can be purchased at the door. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
