Hello friends! Here's a new collage creation....Mount Rushmore by Michael Albert
Hello friends, How are you? Let's talk about a Virtual Art program via Zoom or pre-recorded art demonstrations I have produced for kids & families Best regards, Michael Albert
Since Sugar Hill Children’s Museum opened, we have been facilitating ambitious family friendly art making at the annual Giraffe Path/Hike the Heights festival. This year on Saturday, June 5th, participants hiked remotely, from all over the country, as individuals or in small (social distanced) groups, spontaneously connecting through Zoom and Facebook live. City Life Is Moving Bodies, CLIMB, is a coalition of uptown nonprofits and social justice warriors who for the past 16 years have produced Giraffe Path/Hike the Heights. This community-based initiative was founded on the belief that safe parks and neighborhoods are essential to community health, and that all communities, regardless of socioeconomic background, are entitled to access to safe parks and neighborhoods. Every year, on the first Saturday in June, thousands of uptown New Yorkers hike through the city’s green spaces to Highbridge Park’s Sunken Playground (affectionately known as The Pit) for a day of entertainment, music, dancing, sports, and art making. Traditionally children arrive with giraffe’s they have made at home or during in-school workshops. Sugar Hill Children’s Museum looks forward to many more years of art making in the service of our uptown community. #healtheheights @hiketheheights
