Reaching Out With the Arts

Pasadena Art Workshops, through its Outreach Through Art program, expects to bring art experiences this year to 4,000 children who might otherwise not have had the opportunity because of physical disability or financial hardship.

The organization, which says it receives in-kind services from Pasadena Unified School District, the Pasadena and Altadena public library systems, the Pasadena Community Recreation Services Department and the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, is seeking a community development block grant to continue its program for a second year and and expand it to reach 4,500 children.

For the Record Art Program Misidentified Los Angeles Times Sunday July 21, 1985 Home Edition San Gabriel Valley Part 9 Page 3 Column 3 Zones Desk 3 inches; 78 words Type of Material: Correction A photo caption that appeared in the San Gabriel Valley section on Thursday incorrectly identified a program sponsored by Pasadena Art Workshops and mistakenly implied that the children pictured in the photographs were physically disabled or had financial hardship. In fact, the children were participants in the Giesen Guest Artist program, which is not specifically for low-income or handicapped children. The Giesen program, also sponsored by Pasadena Art Workshops, operates throughout the summer. It is open to children 3 and older and to adults.
