      • Pachis — It Takes a Village Children are taught the importance and truth behind the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child”. They begin by designing their “village”, and then we discuss who takes care of them, who loves them and which are the places where they feel safe and happy. These are the questions that guide children to design the village they believe it would take to raise each and every one of them.

      • Emily L. Halpern — My paintings are comprised of dreamlike compositions which map my inner world. They are a diary of fragments from dreams, incidents from daily life, and internal monologues that ground the work in a personal mythology. The main source of the work is drawn from opening the locked door of the unconscious through processes inspired by Sigmund Freud, Carl Gustav Jung and Surrealism. My intent is to create work which acts as a springboard for the viewer’s own imagination — Emily Halpern Meet the Artist!
