The Child Mind Institute's Student Art Project presents New York City: An Exploration of Lines, with works by the students of Eagle Hill School.

Whether the iconic skyline, the columns of Grand Central, or the rectangular lines of subway tile, New York City provides endless inspiration for artists working with line. The playful architectural line drawings by graphic artist Marz jr. served as further inspiration for students as they created dynamic cityscapes of their own — drawings and prints including brownstones, bridges, subways, stadiums, and more.

For students at Eagle Hill, many of whom struggle to read or write, the ability to express themselves artistically is incredibly important. Art and music classes are part of every child’s curriculum, and there are opportunities for students to continue to hone their skills during our Afternoon Activities Program.
