ANEW Artist Talks

Every 2nd Wednesday at 6:30 PM on Facebook Live

As an extension of ANEW, our latest exhibition showcasing works by Vermont artists with disabilities, Inclusive Arts Vermont is offering monthly virtual artist talks on Facebook Live. Together we’ll explore artwork from the exhibit, each artists’ creative process, and their evolution as artists. Each of these artists offered their unique interpretation of the title – highlighting beginnings, doorways, fresh starts, and opportunity.

Do you want to inspire a lifelong love of reading and creative expression in your child? Join us for a new, six-week session of our award-winning Start With The Arts program, made just for young children!

Start With The Arts for Families is a free, six-week-long program in which young children engage in process-focused, open-ended, arts-based activities, coupled with the reading of high-quality children’s literature. Our new online format offers a chance for caregivers to deepen their relationship with their children while connecting with other families, all with guidance from a skilled teaching artist.

The program meets once per week via Zoom. Each lesson begins with a read-aloud of a children’s book followed by a simple and fun art activity. Books and art supplies will be provided to participants at no cost via no-contact pick-up or shipping. While participation is free, we do ask for a commitment to attend all six sessions.

This series is designed for children ages 2-5 and their parents or caregivers. If you are a childcare provider interested in Start With The Arts, please reach out to Peggy Rainville, peggy@inclusiveartsvermont.org, for more information.

Not sure if you are ready to commit? Join us for a sample session on Thursday, July 2, at 9:00 a.m.! Register for the sample session here, or email Peggy.

Register by July 2: Online, email peggy@inclusiveartsvermont.org, or call 802-871-5002
