Last week, the walls at the National Arts Club exquisitely displayed brightly colored and deeply moving art pieces from youth in Children’s Aid Society community schools and centers. Dozens of children, parents and staff attended the 11th Annual Children’s Art Show at the famous arts club in Gramercy Park on Thursday April 26th to celebrate their talents.

This year, the Art Show featured approximately150 pieces of art by children ages 3-18 from Children’s Aid fall and winter programs. There was something for everyone to enjoy! Delicately made tissue paper cherry blossoms done by 5 and 6 year olds of the Dunlevy Milbank Center to emotionally moving charcoal drawings by teens in the Artistic Noise program.

Overwhelming accolades were given to all the artists by the legendary Dianne Bernhard, President of The National Arts Club, Richard Buery, President and CEO and Dr. William Weisberg, Chief Operating Officer of The Children’s Aid Society. Along with the talent on the walls, all in attendance were treated to an energetic performance by the Children’s Aid Senior Chorus and a riveting original poetic reading by Kelisha Cyrus of The Hope Leadership Academy.
