2005 Now and Tomorrow II postcard

"Greater Tomorrow Youth Art Program," in collaboration with selected Austin area public school art teachers, presents Now and Tomorrow II, an exhibition of artwork by pre-kindergarten to twelfth-grade students in Austin area schools. Now and Tomorrow II celebrates the visual and material culture of Austin area youth, featuring drawings, paintings and ceramic work. The exhibition will take place June 11 through July 3 at Creative Research Laboratory.

Now and Tomorrow II is produced by "Greater Tomorrow Youth Art Program," an outreach program in the Visual Art Studies Division of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Austin. "Greater Tomorrow Youth Art Program" provides supplementary art experiences for K-12 students in the public schools and within community settings. These activities provide youth participants with non-linear creative exercises that relate to everyday life experiences. "Greater Tomorrow Youth Art Program" uses art education as a means of fostering analytic thinking processes that are necessary for balanced intellectual development. The program also provides in-service and in-training to art teachers.

"Greater Tomorrow Youth Art Program," formerly ArtTouch, was established in 2002 by the Visual Art Studies Division of the Department of Art and Art History and the College of Fine Arts (COFA) at the University of Texas at Austin in collaboration with school art teachers, students, school administrators, community-based organizations, philanthropic organizations, professional artists, private citizens, and community leaders in Austin.
