Baldi Middle School last week hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate a partnership with Abington Art Center and artist Carol Stirton-Broad. The event included an ArtSee open house with ceramic artist Stirton-Broad, Sharon Katz of the world music The Peace Train and Ellie Hutchinson of Moore College of Art & Design’s Literacy through Photography program.
Parents and community members were invited to the school to see the benefits of the partnership, which allows Baldi to continue its mission as an ArtZone hub school — part of the ArtsRising program meant to expand “equitable access to high quality arts education opportunities for children and foster an appreciation for the arts among the community.”
