About ProjectArt


ProjectArt’s tuition-free classes run October-May and materials are provided for all students ages 4-18. Local, professional artists teach classes following the National Arts Education Association standards to create fun and imaginative arts experiences every week! Registration is required in advance and space is limited.


Young Artists Initiative


In collaboration with the Institute of Contemporary Art, this ProjectArt class will be unique within our programming. Entitled Young Artists Initiative (YAI) Track 1, this class will act as a stepping stone into the YAI program for students who demonstrate a strong interest in the arts and are eager to improve their skills. The program will incorporate more skill-based lessons on technique and portfolio building. The portfolio review will determine whether students should proceed to ICA’s Young Artists Initiative program.



Sign up today to attend free, weekly classes at Edison Branch Library on Wednesdays from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm.

"Creativity is the driving force behind innovation and change. Creative thinkers are inspired to see new possibilities and pursue making them a reality. People who think creatively are visionaries needed in any field since they often come up with new systems, solutions, and perspectives that enrich culture and society." - Daniel Almeida


Daniel Arturo Almeida (b. 1992. Caracas, Venezuela) is a cultural producer and artist working through photography, installation, archiving, and public engagement. His practice chronicles intimate and collective stories that shape belief systems and hierarchies of power in the Americas. The product of generational migrations, Almeida researches images, music, anecdotes, and documents portraying national pride, nostalgia, and collective amnesia. The work observes shared culture through loss, hope, and empathy. He has exhibited in The U.S.A in various institutions, galleries, and festivals, including A.I.R. Gallery, Tiger Strikes Asteroids, La Salita Project, Columbia Teachers College, Satellite Art Show, and the SVA Chelsea Galleries, among others. Almeida’s work has been reviewed in Hyperallergic and The Daily Lazy


Almeida is the Co-founder of R.I.C.O. R.O.B.O. (NEW INC member) and Pieza

Almeida holds an MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts (2020) and a BFA in Art and Art History from Florida International University (2017). He currently lives and works in Queens, NY.
