The Year of the Innovator: Art Day

Art + Technology + Leadership – Boundaries = Innovation. Art + Technology + Leadership – Boundaries = Innovation. This was the winning formula for another inspiring Art Day.

Art Day is part of the SASF Art Department’s educational series designed to build self-confidence and empowerment. Throughout the day, students from about 40 schools learned that art has the power to transform perceptions of identity and reality. This is an opportunity to use artistic expression to explore difficult social situations and work collaboratively to find solutions.

This year, the theme was “innovator in you.” The inspiring day combined STEAM with an educational, hands-on arts experience. The day concluded with a culminating event featuring fashion garments, music, dance, theater and spoken word.

With the help of professional teaching artists from all over the New York metropolitan area, Art Day was another successful occasion where over 200 students explored, created and found the innovator in themselves.
