Art Inspired By The Songs Of
March 8, 2020
The “Luminous Lenses” exhibition features original artworks that were inspired by the song lyrics of John Lennon.
Artworks were created by a roster of internationally acclaimed professional fine artists from the U.S, Canada, Portugal, France, and the U.K.
Luminous Lenses is a tribute to the creative vision of artists with learning differences like John Lennon who was dyslexic. Song-Word Art House will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork to support the Park Century School Scholarship Fund.
Park Century students typically have language-based learning issues such as dyslexia and, often, ADHD. For these and other learning differences, each child has a team of teachers who customize a program to their individual needs and strengths. These teachers also provide emotional support, which, in turn, fosters a healthy self-image in our students, empowering them to become advocates for their own education and active participants in their learning as they mature.
