Chief Joe Artists @ Kenton Third Thursday!!

Northern Lights
Featuring artwork from
Chief Joseph Elementary School
Arts & Sciences Enrichment Program.

Kenton Family Wellness Center
8315 N. Denver Ave.
March 17, 5pm-8pm

“Northern Lights,” curated by yours truly, showcases the artwork created by this year’s CJAS program participants. All are under 10, most are under 8!! Taking cues from Andy Warhol, classic Portland re-cycled artist, and their own imaginations, these kids have made KFWC the place to be this St. Patrick’s Day!

In response to budget shortfalls and an absence of art or sciences in the Portland Public School curriculum, the PTA, parents, students, teachers and administrators at Chief Joseph Elementary created the Arts & Sciences Enrichment Program.  This FREE after school program, in its 5th year, ran from November 2010-March 2011 and enriched the lives of nearly 200 students.  Offering classes from Gardening and Aeronautics to Stop Motion Animation and Interpretive Dance, the students at Chief Joe were offered an opportunity for learning and expression unmatched by any program in Portland.

Thanks to the artists in Ms. Joy Leising’s class (Co-founder of 100th Monkey Studios) for contributing work to this show!
