The Justice Center recognizes that artistic programming is one of the best ways to engage youth and keep them involved in positive activities. Last month, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez came to celebrate one of our programs with the Kentler International Drawing Space at their gallery in Red Hook. The event celebrated the work of the Red hook Community Justice Center JustArts Drawing Program. The program was designed to engage young teens between the critical ages of 11-13 to provide them with new and positive formats for creative expression. Parents of the young artist were also in attendance to support their children. The young artists were very excited to have their work displayed in a gallery.
