ART AT A DISTANCE

SHARING STORIES WITH HARWOOD STUDIO ARTISTS
Since we can’t hang out with our Harwood Studio Artists in person right now, we asked them to share a little bit about their art practice and how things have changed for them since the stay-at-home order went into effect.
Read our interviews with Lea Anderson, Helen Atkins, Amy Mann, Zahra Marwan, Adrian Pijoan, and Eric Romero.

SAFETY NET

Our annual community art collaboration is a fun and easy project called “Safety Net”. Everyone is invited to participate using whatever materials are available at home. This project is suitable for people of all ages and abilities.

ARTIST TALK: ANDRÉ RAMOS-WOODARD

WHAT DO YOU WANT NOW?! is a body of work that visually deciphers Andre Ramos-Woodard’s personal experiences in an attempt to understand and cope with them. Ramos-Woodard is interested in exploring the dissonance created by this process to discover what it means to exist in this world as a unique individual yet influenced by the prejudices and reality of the world around us. 
Check out the recording of Andre’s artist talk! 

CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

At Harwood Art Center, we continue to adhere to and implement expert public health and safety advisories, and in alignment with our parent organization Escuela del Sol, all of which now direct limiting social gathering in order to limit the acceleration of COVID-19.
As such, Harwood Art Center is closed to the public until further notice. While our campus is closed, our programs stay open. Stay tuned for adapted ways to engage!

Harwood, the public outreach program of Escuela del Sol Montessori, is a creative center for community.

Participating at a grassroots level, Harwood deploys the arts as a catalyst for personal empowerment, cultural enrichment and social change. We believe that equitable access to the arts and opportunities for creative expression are integral to inspired, passionate individuals and to healthy, vibrant communities.
