- About Us
The UCP of NYC Arts Program is a vital component of our programming for fostering self-expression and nurturing the creative process. Whether an artist is accomplished with an extensive portfolio or learning to hold a brush for the first time, UCP of NYC art classes cater to varied levels of experience, providing opportunities for self-discovery and personal expression. Artists are encouraged to explore painting, photography, media arts and poetry in both elective classes or on independent projects.
UCP of NYC is proud to celebrate the creative spirit by facilitating exhibition opportunities at galleries, private receptions, professional state and regional art shows, on the walls of highly trafficked businesses and in our very own programs. Through hard work and great exposure, our artists have won various awards and sold numerous paintings, mixed media pieces and photographs. The net proceeds from all art sales go to the artists themselves, and if designated by them, their respective programs.
The work of UCP of NYC artists affirms the power of creativity, the passion of their individual sensibilities, and offers viewers a unique view of our world.
The UCP of NYC Media Arts Program empowers people by helping them develop strong voices for self-expression. The Media Arts Program encompasses a variety of learning opportunities in both traditional and digital photography, as well as video production.
Projects are initiated by consumer interest and facilitated by our knowledgeable director who acts as both a teacher and a team resource for seeing the project through to fruition.
Media Arts projects are developed to meet the diverse goals and educational needs of those we support; they cover basic digital photography skills, portraiture and composition, or planning and producing movies. A number of individuals have shown interest in sharing their personal “stories” and are working on Self-Advocacy videos to teach viewers about the Americans with Disabilities Act and disability sensitivity issues.
The UCP of NYC Media Arts Program continues to grow and produce an exciting catalog of works to share with the community. Our greatest achievement with the program is that we help individuals develop self-confidence, accomplish project goals and have fun throughout the creative process.
