Art Classes at Urban Pathways' Hallet's Cove Residences

Art is not escape, but a way of finding order in chaos, a way of confronting life” – Robert Hayden.

Many people throughout time have used art as a way of putting life’s troubles in perspective and using the creativity on the canvas to better understand themselves.

At Urban Pathways’ Hallet’s Cove residences in Queens; program participants are doing just that at our new art classes.

Thanks to a grant from New York City Council Member representing Hallet's Cove - Costa Constantinides. Our art classes are held bi-weekly on Saturdays, the class is taught by an official art director who guides program participants in lessons from color mixing to shadowing; as well as an introduction to basic art history.

Every 2 weeks clients take part in art lesson plans from color mixing to basic art history.
