Art & Photography Classes  |  Haverhill  |  2007 

The weekly art and photography classes at the Haverhill Boys Club served approximately 100 boys, ages ranging from 6-17. The program was the only arts education program based in Haverhill's downtown. The program offered valuable art instruction that is often not being provided in the schools, and gave the participants a sense of pride and accomplishment. Taught by artist Sharon Silverman, the program also offered students the opportunity to display their work in a community exhibition. Judges picked winners in several categories, who were then entered to compete in regional and state wide art contests within the Boys Club affiliation.
