Service Project (ART 205-100, ART 220-100):
Students in this course will work directly for Northeast Area Development, Inc (NEAD) developing, and creating artistic portraits of underprivileged, economically disadvantaged children who attend the “Freedom School” tutoring program. The kids who attend the after-school-tutoring-program live within Rochester’s 14609, where the zip code maintains the second highest poverty rate in Monroe County. MCC students will meet the children and then use the encounter for creative inspiration. Completed portraits will be displayed along the walls of the Freedom School building, providing 14609 children with an everlasting connection to the community, an urban inspired neighborhood gallery, memories of their youth, as well as homage to their heritage and identity. (45 hours - Option) F-07
