We're only one week away from the Fund for Fun Summer
Scholarship Campaign Wrap Party, but we're still over
$2,500 away from our goal! Can you help?
One in four children relies on financial aid to attend Greenwich House's After-School and Summer Arts Camp. Even as one of the last affordable arts education programs, Greenwich House routinely receives more requests for financial aid than is available. As a result, these programs are forced to decline many deserving families each year who already have few options for quality arts programs.
Please support the Fund for Fun. Then join us for an evening of food, drink and general merriment on August 12th, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Music School's backyard garden (46 Barrow Street) where we'll celebrate a successful scholarship campaign and extend a special thank you to everyone who made it a success. Mingle with other parents, neighbors and Greenwich House supporters; check out some of the museum quality artwork campers made over the summer; and bid on some unexpected lots at the silent auction.
And, don’t worry about the babysitter – you can bring the kids! We’ll be hosting a special movie night upstairs with pizza and popcorn for the kids, while parents join the adults downstairs.
Now is the time to purchase your tickets to the Fund for Fun Wrap Party!
Can't make it to the party? The Fund for Fun still needs your help. Click http://www.greenwichhouse.org/after_school/fundforfun to make a donation to the Summer Scholarship Campaign.

Port Chester: Melting Pot(s)
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Nearly a year ago you were invited to Clay Art Center to participate in a think-tank led by Artist Michael Strand, and many of you were there to help us brainstorm about a community arts initiative. Since then we have designed and implemented an incredible and unique program, Port Chester: Melting Pot(s), whose goal is to unite the diverse communities here in Port Chester through shared art-making and discussions about clay and food. We have worked with more than 1,000 Port Chester residents of all ages to create ceramic "el-bowls" and to create a community sourced list of ingredients that have become self portraits for each participant (like the example below).
We are beginning to reach out in the local community to restaurants, chefs, home cooks, and foodies to begin to engage with this list of community ingredients and design recipes that illuminate the singular flavors of Port Chester. This is a big job and we hope that you can once again take part and add your unique flavor to the mix. Please help us spread the word about this exciting new recipe building process.
We plan to hold a collaborative recipe workshop here at Clay Art Center on August 17, 2015 from 6-7:30pm.
This will be theoretical – meaning we will work together to create some potential recipes during this first interaction. Later in September we plan to do some hands-on (and stomach-on) taste testing.
Please join us at this event or share with us anyone whose talents you would recommend.
And please plan to celebrate with us during our community Tasting Feast on November the 7th from 4-6pm here at Clay Art Center. Port Chester: Melting Pot(s) will be in the gallery, and we are looking forward to this opportunity to bring the community together through art, food and clay.
