The Arts Students League of New York: Seeds of the League Community Programs extend the League’s distinguished art education and spirit of community beyond its fabled walls. It nourishes the artistic and career aspirations of students, pre-professional, and emerging artists, generally those without the resources or exposure the League can offer. Through partnerships with non-profit organizations, public schools, and city agencies, it brings art to a broader audience of children, adults, and families in their communities. For more information about also applying for the Seeds Scholarship Program, contact Denise Greene at:denise@artstudentsleague.org 646-838-9130  https://seedsoftheleague.org/
