Flash residency! A Scholastic Art & Writing Awards alum takes center stage in NYC

There's something pretty special happening in our NYC headquarters this week! Even if you're not in NYC, though, you can follow along!

From the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers blog: all week long, Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Alumnus Timothy H. Lee is transforming The Scholastic Store main display with his artwork as part of the Art.Write.Now.Pop Up residency! Each day from 11am – 7pm each, he's working in front of a watching public. We encourage you to stop by and check out his progress -- and to check out our Flickr account, where we'll be updating photos all week!

Take a look at what's happened so far:


Pretty awesome, we think. This artist-in-residency concept helps bring visibility to the role of art to a broader public, aligning with the Alliance's mission of recognizing and encouraging young talents for their work, as we celebrate the launch of the 2014 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
