SUMMER MURAL ARTS PROGRAM

The City of Scranton’s Mural Arts Program was a tremendous success. Not only did our children beautify their neighborhood pools, they were able to work in conjunction with local artists. The five (5) city pool sites were Weston Field, Weston Park, Connell Park, Novembrino and Penn Ridge (Capouse) Complex. Children and adults were able to take advantage of this program near their homes without worry of transportation. This program focused on the visual arts and arts education and over
350 children participated ranging from toddler and preschool age to grades K-12.

Heart to Art did two workshops, one at Weston Field another at Connell Park, to introduce the children to the visual arts and to plan for design and implementation along with creating two portable murals. The staff of Heart to Art was responsible for the introductory workshops. Lead artists responsible for the summer mural program were Joseph Opshinsky and Sara Stamford, both graduates
of Keystone College. Mr. Opshinsky went on to attend The University of Arts, Philadelphia, with a degree in painting and drawing
and Ms. Stamford is a graduate of the Tyler School of Art in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania with a degree in ceramics. The artists were assisted throughout the summer by Keystone College students majoring in artistic disciplines. This program also included the Scranton School District’s Summer Lunch Program, which provided lunch free of charge at each of these pool locations on a
daily basis as they have for many years. Funding for this program was made possible by Lackawanna County’s Arts Engage
and Lackawanna County Children and Youth Services. The aim of this program was to enable children to realize their creativity
and have a positive summer experience. To see the murals CLICK HERE
