Schultz-Hill ARTS/EDUCATION Program 2019 in conjunction with Chicken Bone Beach Youth Institute of Jazz Studies "Outreach to Others"- Through the ARTS for Atlantic County Students

Atlantic City public school students are the featured artists and authors of a new coloring book published by the Chicken Bone Beach Youth Institute of Jazz Studies. The book features jazz “greats” from Atlantic City and New Jersey. The students researched the musicians and wrote short bios to accompany the artwork.

The coloring book was debuted at an event at the Atlantic City Free Public Library on March 2 featuring Councilman Kaleem Shabazz and Henrietta Shelton, founder of the Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation.



Sponsors of the youth program include the Schultz-Hill Foundation, the Children’s Cultural Arts Foundation, Inc., the Atlantic City Free Public Library, the Chicken Bone Beach Jazz Camp and the Chicken Bone Beach Youth Institute of Jazz Studies.
