CAW4Kids Tour

Tour Leader: Janet Braun-Reinitz , Muralist

The Creative Arts Workshop of Kids sponsors children's murals across Harlem. On March 26, they took a group of school children on a tour of the murals along and around West 135th Street. The tour ended in West Harlem River Park, where CAW4Kids's high school summer programs have painted numerous murals over the past few years.
