The City Seen from The Boston Globe
CAMBRIDGE -- The Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University has been open to the public since 1895 and is in the second year of a community outreach program that encourages local children to study and sketch classic and modern art. 'When you help them see, you build confidence and thinking skills,' says artist and educator Deborah Putnoi. 'When you ask a child to look at something and articulate what he sees, then suddenly you find someone with more confidence about art. ' As part of the Sketching After School program, nine year old Eden Shiferaw gets up close with a self portrait of French painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Eden says, 'I like drawing because you can draw how you feel.'
