Studio in a School: "Littlest Learners" Exhibition

ABC's early childhood classrooms are working with the Studio in a School Association to hold art workshops, during which kids learn how to make art, observe the world closely, describe what they see, and reflect on what they create. An ABC student’s work was selected to be featured at Studio in a School’s "Littlest Learners" exhibition on April 19th, from 4:30-6:30PM at The Gallery (1 East 53rd Street) – come check it out and celebrate the hard work of all our students!

 A unique happening at Carnegie Hall celebrating the incredible life and legacy of Lead Belly: as  George Harrison said; “No Lead Belly, no Beatles.” It was an unforgettable night!
