Partnership Visits: East Harlem School

video still of student reciting poetry in The Frick Collection

Enjoy these videos of East Harlem School students reading original poems inspired by works of art in the galleries! The East Harlem School is an independent middle school enrolling children from families with low income. The school’s mission is to challenge students to develop a balanced physical, moral, and intellectual strength that they will use to adapt to change. The Frick has partnered with the East Harlem School since 2011, welcoming students into the galleries for guided visits, drawing exercises, and poetry writing.
