A local artist received a grant from the City called the City Artist Corps grant. She's using her grant towards doing a one time open studio/talk for teens and young adults so they can learn about "Art As a Path." She lives in the area (not JH but nearby) so feel free to check out her website to see some of her work, or if you're looking for local creatives to follow on IG, she's at @sandramackval . If you have questions, she's the best one to ask via email, but I'm also happy to try to help.

Art As A Path : Free art event for teens in Long Island City art studio.

What:  "Art As A Path" is a fun and informal art studio visit plus an open talk/conversation with teens and young adults. The talk would be centered on the idea that it IS possible to follow your call for art as a profession.
Light refreshments will be served.
Covid 19 safety guidelines are encouraged. Artist is fully vaccinated.

When: Saturday October 16th from 3pm-6pm.  The studio will be open during this time for parents and teens to visit.  At 4pm we will have the talk/conversation, followed by a Q&A. 

Where: In the artist's studio, located in Long Island City near 24th street and 37th Ave., so you can experience what's like to be in an artist's  place of work. Once you RSVP, you will be sent the full address.

Who:  Sandra Mack-Valencia, a professional full time artist. Interested in sharing her experience and encouraging young creative minds to follow their vocation.

**Space is limited. First come first served.  Please RSVP by emailing directly to 

This project is possible thanks to the City Artist Corps grant.  This award was created to energize New York City's artists and engage the public with arts activities this Summer and Fall.
