In-Partnership Children’s Holiday Arts Challenge
RDRC and community partners, PSEG and National Grid are pleased to announce the delivering of art supplies to several local schools as a part of our community engagement activities focused on children’s wellness through the arts. We are encouraging every child receiving art supplies to use their talents to create artwork that can be displayed on our website and our office.
Art helps children learn and practice skills like patterning and cause and effect (i.e., “If I push very hard with a crayon the color is darker”). Also, art contributes to the practice of critical thinking skills by making a mental plan or picture of what children intend to create and following through on their plan.
If you would be interestd in partnering with us in encouraging wellness through arts to the Rockaway children, please feel free to contact RDRC at 718.327.5300 – Mon-Fri. 9am to 5pm.
