Coalition for Hispanic Families Arts and Literacy After School Program
73-10 34th Avenue
Borough of Queens
The Arts and Literacy After School and Summer Program addresses the educational needs of Bushwick children by providing them with opportunties to create, think, communicate, and problem solve. Program activities build literacy in the widest sense of the word through creative writing, the visual arts, theater, photography, video, creative movement, music, martial arts, media literacy, gardening, and Yoga. The interdisciplinary curriculum builds upon the children's interests and strengths, using the same effective, holistic, multicultural approach which is the hallmark of all of the Coalition's programs. The program also offers art therapy, monthly Family Arts Nights with family literacy workshops, support for families, family educational trips, apprenticeships for neighborhood high school students, and comprehensive services through the agency's other programs.
