ArtsConnection’s Student Art Program showcases works by young artists in grades 6-12 from a wide cross-section of New York City’s public schools. In partnership with New York City Visual Arts students, student work is submitted for selection in exhibitions hosted by corporate partners. For students, the artistic process is transformed from a subject learned in school to a professional endeavor.
