There’s always something happening at CATC, from the rich stories of individual urban teens finding new hope and opportunity, to our twice-annual themed student art shows, or the excitement of seniors creating their futures through Bridging the Gap. Here are some ideas for stories. For appointments or interviews: Gail Silver at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513.475.0002
Preparing a beautiful Deck the Hall student art show
Saturday, December 12, 3-6 p.m., Longworth Hall
The students are getting ready for the 2015 Deck the Hall student art show. Their work is coming along beautifully, as you can see from the accompanying slide show. This semester they’ve been studying the impact artists have on the world, how the world impacts artists and exploring how their own environments have impacted their lives and work. Be sure to stop by the show to see how the students have expressed their understanding of the study theme with works such as these and many more in progress. This is always a festive show, with families, friends and CATC supporters shopping for holiday gifts, enjoying refreshments and talking with the students about their work. Sale profits are paid to the students–and we cannot overstate the pride our kids feel when they sell their art!
Ongoing story opportunities:
Training for meaningful careers with Bridging the Gap: Every summer, recently graduated seniors train in various career paths, including as nursing assistants (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center is primary partner), through the CATC Bridging the Gap workforce development program. BTG is an extension of the arts-based programming that helps the students achieve graduation, with supports to enable them to succeed after graduation.
