The Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York) presents “Art in the Life of Young Minds,” an exhibit created by students aged eight to 14 under the mentorship of artist Al Johnson.

The art will be on display at Gallery Three in South Oxford Space, 138 South Oxford Street in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, now to June 30. The exhibition is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, until 1 p.m.

Al Johnson Art, Inc (AJA) provides art educational and mentoring programs to people ages six through sixty plus. AJA’s programs are established in non-profit organizations and institutions, in addition to public schools. Through participation in the youth oriented programs, students learn lifelong art skills from pencil to paint.

The works on display were created by students including Eden Sanaa Duncan-Smith, age 8 from Brooklyn; Ian Guy Gray, age 8 from Teaneck, NJ; Derek King, age 14 from Queens and Jordan Carole DeJongh, age 15 from Queens. The pieces are acrylic on canvas and pencil on paper and are surprisingly accomplished, given the young age of the artists.

A.R.T./New York is the service and advocacy organization for the Off Broadway theatre community. Twenty member theatre companies make their home at South Oxford Space.
