During the summer, a series of arts and crafts workshops centered around nature themes were held at the Koreatown Youth Community Center (KYCC). The workshops were led by a skilled volunteer artist named Miriam Hartig. Participants were given the opportunity to express their creativity by crafting vibrant bird feeders and unique self-portraits using materials sourced from nature, such as leaves, flowers, and other natural elements. These hands-on activities encouraged participants to explore and connect with the natural world while also developing their artistic skills.

The benefits of art in a child’s education are widespread. Art can help kids express themselves and understand the world around them. Art is usually a hands-on experience and fun. For low-income students, studies have found that kids who have more arts education in school see long-term benefits by both academic and social standards. –  this stat comes from – www.kqed.org
