P.S. 244 The Active Learning Elementary School

Flushing, NY

Grades PreK – 3

exterior, PS 244We partner with Studio in a School to bring a 14-session targeted art residency to our K – 2 students. Teachers work with the resident artist to create a unit of study that complements and extends classroom work. This year, the Kindergarten focuses on Imaginary Animals as an extension of their Nonfiction Unit in Animals; the grade 2 residency focuses on New York City and public art as an extension of their Social Studies unit. Last year, the resident artist engaged students in collage and portraiture to extend the 1st grade’s Author Study unit on Ezra Jack Keats. We have also partnered with Schools that Rock to offer violin lessons in an after-school setting. Learn more about P.S. 244 The Active Learning Elementary School.
