Leticia, a fourth grader from PS 130 in Bayside, created a painting of a bird magician in a city background that was initially supposed to be a rainbow.
“I had no idea what to do for these two, so I did something crazy!” Leticia said.
The art program is now in its 45th year. Kim Kanatani, deputy director and director of education at the Guggenheim, said in a statement, “The Learning Through Art program at the Guggenheim has worked with New York City public schools to offer hands-on experiences in the visual arts that otherwise might not be available to students. LTA firmly believes in the importance of integrating the arts across the curriculum and has also contributed important research to the field of education.”
A Year With Children will be on display from April 22–June 12.
