Art in the Neighborhood finishes summer session

BRATTLEBORO — Art in the Neighborhood, a local nonprofit organization that provides tuition-free art classes to children in low-income housing communities in Brattleboro, has just finished its six-week summer session.

Classes operate year-round at Westgate Housing, Ledgewood Heights, and Moore Court. Art in the Neighborhood also brings classes to the HCRS (Health Care and Rehabilitative Services) summer program at the Guilford Fairgrounds.

Executive Director and long time arts teacher Mollie Burke, who started this program in 2008, notes the expansion of classes this summer to include a Community Outreach project at Moore Court, where children designed a special garden space.
