Words vs. Pictures uses the visual and literary arts to spark creativity and self-exploration. Participants complete both writing and visual arts projects and in the process develop the confidence and interpersonal communication skills essential for success in an increasingly interconnected world.
We currently offer two book clubs - one for elementary school students and one for middle and high school students.
Our club for elementary school aged readers encourages a love of books from a young age.
Beyond Words: Our literary club for teens aims to promote reading and engage its members in natural topics of discussion for today’s young adults.
This 3 month program teaches middle and high school students the art of photography and storytelling through pictures. Students will participate in a themed project and photo exhibit. Preference is given to students residing in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.
Through a partnership with Prep for Prep, our students will receive support and guidance from a group of exceptionally bright high school students who are poised to become leaders in business, education, and government.
“We frame our world through story. The power of a purposeful visual narrative can unite, teach, motivate, persuade, and ignite our imagination.”

“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
