Tuesday Time with DRAWING

TALENTED TUESDAYS

Dear PS 101 Families:

As we wrap up the school year with a big red bow, we are delighted to share our commitment to the arts, across a wide range of disciplines this school year. Our continued partnership with Marquis Studios included amazing lessons shared with our families via you tube with Pear-deck, Flip-grid or Padlet.

We proudly completed the 2020-2021 school year with exactly 100 lesson videos released across our grades and various arts’ disciplines: Creative Movement; Abstract Art; Circus Arts; Dancing Around the World; Mixed Visual Arts; Broadway Dance; Yoga Wellness; Drawing.

We hope these arts’ lessons inspired our students to find those hidden talents, interest areas or risk-taking ways to try something different.

We will close out the school year with our final lesson video to conclude the drawing residency with Marquis Studios Teaching Artist, Ciara. We saved the best for last!

Have fun to Create, Design and DRAW something new today with Ciara! Enjoy this together time with your child!

Dear PS 101 Families:

Are you ready for a super-sized drawing activity? Today, is your lucky day! As the school year quickly comes to an end, this week’s lessons include two fun-filled drawing tasks for each grade band of students to engage in.

Ciara‘s presentations are fun, witty, encouraging, and supportive to make every artist feel worthy of their masterpiece.

Enjoy this week’s super-sized drawing treat with your child.
