Spring Break Arts Programming!

April 25th-29th 

Children between the ages of 6 &12 are invited to experience a wonderful week of Spring Break Fun and Creativity!  KCP's “Spring Quake" is an exploration-based week of artistic inspiration and art making!

 

With daily excursions into New York’s vibrant art-based outlets  and hands-on form-specific art lessons, the week of creativity and explorative inspiration will  culminate into a student-conceived presentation. KCP's Spring Quake is set to be a fun and engaging experience for all!
 

 Classes are led by instructors,  who are both seasoned educators  as well as professional artists.

Classes are small.   We encourage curiosity, leadership, team work, individual voices, and free thinking!

Happy Creativity!

 

I’m Arin Maya Lawrence, the co-facilitator and program coordinator at KCP. I’m a vocalist, writer, dancer and designer, and am eager to share my gifts with the children of KCP!

 

I’ve had the opportunity to teach the arts with Fit4Life, Cypress Hills Community Development Corporation, Brooklyn Museum, MoCADA Museum, Weeksville Heritage Center and currently Urban Arts Partnership, where I engage students (ages 9-18) in the exploration of visual and performance art. 

 

I am a proud graduate of Howard University where I obtained a Bachelors degree in English Literature. After graduation, I enjoyed a  career in literary arts at Randomhouse book publishing company. However, my free and artistic spirit took reign, and after taking a sabbatical in Paris, I decided to pursue the arts wholeheartedly. Since then, I have recorded and released five EPs, one LP and several singles; performed for the historic and groundbreaking Rick Owens’ runway show at Paris Fashion Week,  Harlem Stage and the John F. Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. In Addition to recording and peforming, I've  launched and maintained a successful handmade accessories brand, ArinMayaMade, for the colorful, eco-conscious and eclectic side of everyone. 

 

New York (especially Brooklyn) has nurtured, grown and inspired my artistic voice immensely and I am ecstatic to join KCP and inspire the next generation of young, passionate artists!
