1 REGRANT Application 2008 Portfolio Development and Preparation for the NYC High School Art Entrance Exam Submitted by Mary Rieser Heintjes To: BROOKLYN ARTS COUNCIL Deadline: September 27, 2007

2 PERSONAL STATEMENT Being creative and thinking positively has been a driving force in my existence in New York City. Seeing and watching the world around me finds me wanting to help it along in any way that I can. Seeing young students striving to figure things out, makes me want to help them. Seeing miscreant students harm others because their energies are not challenged in a positive way, makes me want to introduce them to art and working with their hands and minds to think towards the future. This finds me now wanting to focus on integrating the arts with young students to find a future for themselves in this ever changing and complicated system. I have developed a teaching program to assist middle school students prepare for the NYC HS Art Entrance Exam with much success.

3 Brooklyn Public Library After attending a seminar at the Brooklyn Public Library moderated by Angeli Rasbury, searching for artists to develop creative programs at the library, it became a real possibility to find a home for my idea. A workshop for middle school students wanting to enter a High School specializing in art would be an excellent activity to present at the library. Photography by Mary Rieser Heintjes

4 Collaboration with Brooklyn Arts Council To be able to reach many students, it would be necessary to find funding for this idea and merge the creative endeavor with an administration seeking to assist artists and the community. SO:

22 Conclusion To produce my own art, I find that reacting to the environment encompassed a threshold in which some inner desire to draw, paint and photograph keeps me always drawing, painting and photographing and planning future work. I strive to learn all the means necessary to convey emotional expressions, but have always found drawing on paper to touch the fragile details that burst the barrier to conquer profound observation. There remains a distant view and always some wish to capture. Keeping working and keeping an open spirit to an unconscious flow to the meaningful aspects of life and being alive, somehow guides me in the pieces I am now doing. Because of these attributes, it facilitates others to be creative around me which I encourage. And so here I am wanting to do that for the Brooklyn Public Library and our future artists.
