 AWE 2018

•Enrollment is limited to three sessions unless authorized by AWE. More than one session allows the
student to plan and execute more complex projects.
• 9 to 18 years of age. AWE is for the focused artist who wants to make art everyday for at least a week!
AWE nurtures and provides the building blocks for the next steps of each individual artist.
• Classes begin at 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday each week except for Session 1
which is Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

• Lunch is at the Borough Bridge Park (sandwiched between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge)
or under the Manhattan Bridge Archway. Students should bring their own lunch and snack or have
money to buy lunch from local merchants. A small refrigerator is in the studio.
• AWE provides complimentary chaperone service for those students who take the subway on the F line
to the 7th Avenue Stop in Park Slope. It does not include subway fare. Students must have a metro card
when riding the subway.
• AWE may use photographs of students and/or artwork for its website.


AfterAWE is from 3 pm up to 6 pm Monday through Friday (Tuesday through Friday for Session 1).
Students can continue to work on existing projects or start new ones. AfterAWE is especially helpful
to those who can’t pick up their children by 3 pm. Billing is done by the quarter hour. It is $20 per hour.

AWE Group Show

This wonderful student exhibit has taken place at the end of each AWE Summer and showcased some of the best art done by AWE students. Please view the 2017 AWE Group Show Video from last summer’s exhibit held at the AWE Studio under AWE Summer, Videos. The 2018 AWE Group Show may take place during the school year so that all AWE students; Summer, Portfolio, and After School can participate. Information about the proposed date will be on the website once it has been set.
