P.S./I.S. 217 (Roosevelt Island School) is excited to begin a new partnership with Studio in a School for a Visual Arts residency. All K-8 classes will receive 50-60 minutes of art instruction one day a week beginning the week of November 29th. This residency is being funded by Council Member Lappin and the PTA.
The purpose of the residency is to increase student foundational art skills, increase an appreciation and love for the arts and help to make connections to classroom experiences. Through the context of making art, our students will learn the discipline of problem solving. Being actively involved in the process of making art as a school community will give us a context for sharing ideas, appreciating our differences and respecting each other work.
The residency will end with an Art Exhibition in Spring 2011. More information to follow!
Monday - Tim Thyzel will work with 3th and 4th graders
Wednesday - Carolina Bermudez will work with Kindergarten and 2nd graders
Thursday - Robin Holder will work with 5th and 6th, 7th and 8th graders
Friday - Belinda Blum will work with Class K12, Class 345 and 1st graders
On Studio days students should dress appropriately for making art, in addition, students will need an over-sized T-shirt to serve as a smock. Please write student's name in the T-shirt for easy identification. We are arranging for our Learning Leader volunteers to assist in the art room. Parents will not be assisting in their child's class.
