Looking Back at 2020

on January 13, 2021

From remote operations and distanced teaching to launching brand new programs, P.S. ARTS’ ability to transform in response to the needs of children and families was tested to the limit in 2020. Looking back at 2020 we are proud of our staff and teachers who have continued to provide high quality arts education to the schools and students we serve!


Looking back at 2020:

  • P.S. ARTS assembled and distributed over 5,000 Art Kits to 19 schools in 5 districts.
  • P.S ARTS organized 26 free Family Arts Nights, including 11 virtual events, featuring a range of arts activities such as salsa dancing and wool felting.
  • P.S. ARTS provided 80+ free visual art, theater, music, and dance activities with step-by-step instructions on its website. Check them out in the To Go! Projects section at psarts.org.
  • P.S. ARTS offered Professional Development opportunities to 36 Teaching Artists across 4 disciplines to enable them to make the most of their virtual classrooms while providing tools and training that prioritize cultural responsiveness, anti-racism, and social emotional learning.

We look forward to another year of creativity with you all as we continue to adapt and evolve to best meet our community’s needs. To learn more about P.S. ARTS’ mission click here and to help us continue this mission click here.
