P.S. ARTS coordinates with schools and parent groups to provide intergenerational arts programming for the entire school community.
These events feature free, hands-on family arts projects and reach nearly 10,000 students and family members annually. In addition to arts projects, families are given information about their students’ arts classes, how to volunteer with our organization, and additional resources (available in English and Spanish) to bring art-making into the home. P.S. ARTS Community Engagement events promote the value and impact of our programs and contribute to long-term arts program sustainability. These events also give families an opportunity to bond through creative activities while getting to know each other as artists in a safe, fun environment.
