LightHouse has attracted an impressive number of artists. More than half of the students in our program spend substantial time creating visual art pieces of all kinds, and take part in the many art classes we’ve been offering this year.
On Friday, April 15 they will be showing their work at an opening reception, 4:00-7:00 pm in the lobby of the STEAM building at 208 Race St. in Holyoke. We’ve invited other teens from the community to share some of their work as well.
Some pieces will be for sale- like the t-shirts they’ve been making in our Screenprinting class, as well as other art pieces that students have created specifically to sell. We are very grateful to the Holyoke Cultural Council for supporting this project. We are supporting teens to make the art they feel passionate about, to build their skills, and to learn how to make money in the creative economy. Come see!
