BENEFITING: ROMARE BEARDEN FOUNDATION INC

EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2014

THE STORY:

During his lifetime, Romare Bearden was a fierce advocate for ensuring that artists—particularly young artists—had the opportunity to have their voices heard. In order to fulfill this extraordinary legacy, we are committed to providing vital arts education programming to students and up-and-coming artists in New York City and nationwide.

Research shows that learning about and through the arts helps level the playing field for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and that students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.

Despite these significant findings, arts education is one of the first programs that schools cut as they try to focus on the Common Core State Standards. The Romare Bearden Foundation hires artists to provide art instruction to schools that desperately need it. These residencies base lessons on the K-12 arts curriculum that was developed around Bearden's life and work.

We believe that every child and aspiring artist deserves the opportunity to grow and learn through the creation and exploration of art. To honor Romare Bearden’s life-long commitment to young artists, the programs include:

Romare Bearden in the Classroom: A Visual Arts Curriculum

Through the curriculum, dedicated Teaching Artists bring Bearden’s work to life by encouraging the exploration of art making and developing problem solving and critical thinking through the use of the vocabulary of the visual arts. Students have the often unprecedented opportunity to learn how to observe, describe, analyze, and interpret artwork, thinking outside the box.

In keeping with Bearden’s dedication to support young artists in underserved communities, our programs currently focus on bringing the arts to schools and neighborhoods with predominately minority populations. 

Scholarships

Romare Bearden Foundation scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in the Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) Prep Program, through the Visual Arts Department. These scholarships provide the opportunity to learn technical skills necessary to compete for post-secondary study and career development. Scholarships include tuition, registration, and materials fees, and are awarded to financially needy students who demonstrate a great interest and sincere passion for the visual arts.

Cinque Artists Program

Panels, symposia, and other public programming geared toward working artists and college students. Named in honor of Cinque Gallery, founded by artists Bearden, Norman Lewis and Ernest Crichlow, we continue Bearden's legacy of providing opportunities and enriching dialogue for artists and curators.

The Romare Bearden Foundation has touched the lives of many students and artists in New York, but we know we can do even more.

Your support by September 30, 2014 will help us expand to reach young people in New York City and across the country, strengthening our commitment to Bearden’s legacy and bringing an arts curriculum to the students who most need it.
