We recently had some very special guests at our studios in New Rochelle, NY – The Manhattan Chapter of the Young President’s Organization. More than 80 families visited the studio and enjoyed “A Day with Internationally Renowned Pop Artist Charles Fazzino.”
What is the Young President’s Organization?
The Young President’s Organization, or YPO, is a premier international network of young global leaders whose purpose is to build better leaders through education and idea exchange.
What Did the Day Consist of?
The day consisted of exclusive tours of Fazzino’s studios, two interactive workshops, and one on ones with more than 75 children. Fazzino and his art staff had a wonderful time working with the kids, each of whom created their own 3D pop art masterpieces based on their favorite Fazzino work of art!
“It was wonderful to meet so many motivated kids. They really showed an interest in the work and a real talent too. It’s a luxury for us to be able to spend so much time with one group. The kids were completely engaged and it’s gratifying to watch them really get into the work. By the end of the workshop, they had something they could be proud of to take home as a memento of their visit to my studio. I also very much enjoyed interacting with the adults, talking to them about my artwork and in many instances, introducing them to the 3D art style.”
We were thrilled to be able to share our art, studio, and mission with such an engaged and motivated group of people. What a treat for us…we can only hope it was as much of a treat for them!
A special Thank you to Alvin & Friends for hosting our celebratory luncheon we had in between our hands on workshops.
