Join Sausalito Marin City students, families and staff, along with Youth in Arts Mentor Artists and other teaching artists, at an Art Walk event on Tuesday, December 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Bayside Elementary Multipurpose Room at 630 Nevada.
There will be over 400 student works on display, created by K-8 students of YIA Mentor Artists Brooke Toczylowski and Evan Bissell. Performances by in-school music students will be featured, along with a theater performance and capoeira (Brazilian dance-martial arts) demonstration by Youth in Arts’ Twilight After School program students.
Selected students will be honored for their work, achievement and contributions to school community life with new awards inspired by three well-known artists:
Recipients of the Frida Kahlo Award will be selected for their willingness to take risks and confidence in their approach to making art. The Dawoud Bey Award will honor students who are good listeners, who care about other people’s perspectives and who are positive community builders. And the Ruth Asawa Award will be given to students who are hard workers, determined and diligent about learning and making art.
The event is free to the community and light refreshments and dessert will be provided.
