“Dreams” Art Exhibition by NYCATA

Enjoy the Dreams Art Exhibition by The New York City Art Teacher’s Association 

We all dream. From our dreams often come our best ideas.

Out of the nebulous world of dreams, we find inspiration. The artists in the show are all educators in NYC public schools or are now retired art teachers. The art works focus on how they have harnessed their dreams and imagination into their art.

NYCATA/UFT is the standing professional committee of the United Federation of Teachers representing art educators in New York City.
