Connecting Through Art During Distance Learning

on June 2, 2021

In the last year, we have witnessed firsthand how communities can connect through creativity and support each other – even virtually. Every year, P.S. ARTS hosts a series of Family Art Nights at our partner schools to bring students, school staff, friends, and families together through creativity. Although this school year looked like none other, it also provided an opportunity to engage with students in new ways, expand what we could do with our free events, and extend our reach to the general public. Despite the hardships and hurtles, we are proud to say that we were able to connect with even more families and communities virtually through the arts. During the 2020-21 school year, P.S. ARTS hosted a total of 63 Family Art Nights, including 6 public Family Art Nights, with over 900 participants. Thank you to the staff and teachers who worked together to create and cultivate these opportunities! We are so thankful for those who joined and supported these amazing community-building events! We can’t wait to share more with you all next year.

Keep an eye out on our social media for the next free public Family Art Night! You can help support this and other programs here.
