Capturing Community

Using Art to Express Kindness & Respect

More about this exhibition

Capturing Community is designed to provide a creative learning environment that improves critical thinking skills and vocabulary, supports fine motor control, and builds self-esteem and confidence for its young creative participants. This project plans to adhere to a framework for social and emotional learning, focusing on core areas such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. A teaching artist from the Mattatuck Museum will teach concepts of community through photography based on a similar curriculum used last year at CCS.
