CCNY Invites Harlem Children to Family Arts Day May 10

Clowns, puppets, masking making and sing-a-longs will all be part of the treat at The City College of New York’s 4th Family Arts Day, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at Aaron Davis Hall. Activities include mask-making, puppetry, sing-a-longs, storytelling, live performances and more. The event is free and open to children aged six to 11, their siblings and parents from Harlem and surrounding communities.

“Family Arts Day has been an overwhelming success since it started and we once again invite children from the community to come to The City College for several hours of fun, music, storytelling and other activities,” said Sobha Kavanakudiyil, lecturer in the City College School of Education’s Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture, who started the event in 2011.

It is presented by the School of Education’s Graduate Program in Educational Theatre, one of just ten such graduate programs in the nation. Students in program create and facilitate all Family Arts Day activities as part of their curriculum.
