The Estey Art Initiative Inc. engages and empowers children through art! We train professional artists and early childhood educators to work with elementary school students in grades 3, 4, & 5.
We bring artists to elementary schools across New Brunswick for in class art presentations, encouraging fine art awareness and appreciation. We invite students to then join us for a 10 week after school program where they can really be themselves and unleash their creativity in an inclusive and supportive environment. The students create 10 unique pieces of art in their custom sketchbook.
Following the program, we provide the students to feel like a gallery artist! They lend us their artwork, we professionally frame it and local businesses rent the artwork to be displayed on their walls for 1 year. The rental fee supports another student to participate in the after school program. This student art rental program is called one4one.
