Seeds of the League:
Teaching the Language of Art in the Community

This new League program puts League student artists in classrooms and community venues to teach underserved students the language of art.

Through Seeds of the League, the League’s tradition of teaching art to anyone with the interest is extended into the broader New York City community in public schools and New York City Parks Department locations. At a time when arts education is ever more limited by budget constraints, Seeds of the League introduces children to art making, encouraging self-expression and creativity. At the same time, the program continues the League’s long commitment to putting our artists to work.

Art program growth continues for Parks Afterschool students through League scholarships. Read more about how the League introduces young people to the world of art.

The Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center (LSNC) Afterschool and Summer Camp Programs offer young students "inspiration and the opportunity to learn, play and make friends." Seeds of the League is proud to be part of LSNC's artist programming for children.

Seeds of the League has also embarked on a unique partnership with the NYC Parks Department and Chashama Gallery. League artists teach children year-round at four of the Parks recreation centers (Al Smith, Hansborough, J. Hood Wright, Hunts Point and Tony Dapolito). In June 2013, Anita Durst, Founder of Chashama Gallery, displayed the artwork of the young artists in this growing program.
