Edward Hopper House Collaboration Provides Museum Partnership Program for Nyack Middle School

Local business, Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty, and Edward Hopper House recently announced the creation of Museum School Partnership Programs for five local Hudson Valley public schools with monies raised during a fundraiser held last year.  Nyack Middle School 8th graders were among the lucky recipients of this exciting opportunity that also provides a community focus on world-famous artist, Edward Hopper, who was born and raised in Nyack.  The mission of the Edward Hopper House is to celebrate Edward Hopper’s legacy by preserving his birthplace, family home and archive while serving as a resource for scholars and artists and nurturing community engagement with the arts. 

 “Each lesson was derived from Edward Hopper, his home, his collection and the many aspects of his work that relate to the various subjects and units of study across the Kindergarten through Grade12 curriculum,” said Richard Ellis, owner of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty. “We are so happy to foster arts education in the Hudson Valley, which has long been a haven for artists.” 

The program curriculum for NMS 8th graders included a pre-visit in the classroom, a trip to the Edward Hopper House with hands on workshops at Rockland Center for the Arts, a post-visit back in the classroom and instruction from a selected artist in residence, Mr. Marcus John.  Students from Jenna Klossner's and Mary Burke's class created Storyboards and participated in Mr. John's hands-on lessons while being encouraged to use their artwork as their inspiration.  The partnership has been bolstered by ArtWorks parents' generous decision to fund another week in the classroom.
