Community Roots Basketball Media Day 🎉 🏀

We are thrilled to share images from the first-ever Media Day for the girl's and boys basketball team at Community Roots Middle School. Basketball team members gathered in the auditorium to show off their winning moves on camera. Students had a blast and cheered one another on while images were taken. We hope to keep this tradition alive In the years to come and continue to show the spirit of sports in Afterschool.

📸 Documentary, Photography, and Filmmaking class's latest works

Jade Sacker is our Teaching Artist for the Documentary, photography, and filmmaking class at Robeson High School. Her students have been working to learn their way around the camera and ways to tell visual stories through the lens. Here are some of the Robeson student's favorite images from the year thus far! Stay tuned for the premiere of their upcoming documentary.

🖌️Printmaking with Artspeak Teaching Artist Barby

A huge shoutout to Teaching Artist Barby Beauvais for helping our Artspeak students explore and practice new art forms. This month Artspeak students experimented with blending colored pencils and exploring various color schemes. Their compositions were inspired by artist Charles Demuth’s strategy of utilizing lines and shapes to separate the composition, changing how light interacts and affects the color of spaces and shapes.

✊🏾 Celebrating Black History Month with the #BCCPTIMECAPSULE

From trailblazers who paved the way for civil rights to visionaries who have left an indelible mark on art, science, and culture, we stand in awe of the remarkable achievements that Black history encompasses. Let’s embrace the diversity and unity within the Black community and beyond. Here’s to Black History Month—a time to honor the past, amplify the present, and inspire a brighter tomorrow! 🌟🖤

In honor of celebrating this month, we would like to share past student works that celebrate black history.

This project is titled “Beauty of Change” created by our 2022-2023 Artspeak students. This series combines found images from the BLM protests of 2020 and images photographed by our students throughout Brooklyn to showcase their representation of change and the beauties we can find through it.

This series was beautifully photographed and edited by

8th graders (now 9th graders ✨) Madison, Jazanie and Amy
