With school budgets getting slashed, I'm fearful for the future of NYC's youngest artists. The Guggenheim is once again stepping to the plate. A Year with Children 2010, is an annual Guggenheim exhibition showcasing artwork by elementary school students in grades 2-6--teaching kids that artworks and dreams matter.

The exhibition presents selections of school-kid artwork from 10 public schools throughout New York City, who participated in the Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art (LTA). Bring your kids to see the 120 works will be on display including drawings, photographs, clay and found object sculptures, paintings, assemblage pieces, and fabric collages.

In its 39th year, LTA is a pioneering arts where professional teaching artists collaborate with classroom teachers to develop art projects that allow students to learn art skills and techniques and explore ideas and themes related to school curriculum. The program encourages curiosity, critical thinking, and ongoing collaborative investigation.
