LTA kindergarterners at PS 163
It's April, halfway through the semester, and AFA is underway across the five boroughs!
Literacy Through the Arts, our year-long arts literacy program, is in PS 15 (Manhattan), Hamilton Heights Elementary (Manhattan), and this year, for the first time (thanks to support in part by New York State Council on the Arts!), PS 163 (Bronx). Students in grades K - 2 have been enjoying making a band like in the book OLIVIA MAKES A BAND, making their own books inspired by KNUFFLE BUNNY, and making campaign posters for DUCK FOR PRESIDENT.
Visual Arts residencies have wrapped up at PS 69 (Staten Island) and PS 76 (Queens), where kindergarteners got a chance to learn about Haiku Poetry and us it to inspire their their artwork.
Dance and movement-based residencies are getting started. Creative Works, which works with youth at New Alternatives for Children, will work with youth to devise and performan an original piece. At Weeksville Elementary (Brooklyn) students are participating in a Dance residency to help them prepare for the school's end-of-year dance festival.
In 2018 Arts For All turns ten! Check us out on social media and keep an eye out for how you can be a part of it, celebrating ten years of programming and ensuring many more years to come.
Thank you once again for your continued support of our mission. Without your help, we would not be able to reach thousands of under-served New York City children with our accessible arts programs.
