Studio in a School Long-Term Program
STUDIO in a SCHOOL is back and ready to create with PS 133!!! Mr. Copeland and aide Ms. Johnson are happy to be back working with the students. This is the third year of the five-year long-term grant we were awarded from STUDIO. We are thrilled that our students will continue to have the support of this high-caliber institution under the guidance of such a talented teaching team.
Why STUDIO Matters to PS 133
The STUDIO classroom becomes a dedicated art studio where the students are encouraged to experiment and classroom teachers learn how to extend art into their classroom. Drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture, 2-D applied design, and media tech are linked to other classroom subjects. This introductory year will consist of:
- For Students: a full-time STUDIO artist is in residence, Noel Copeland, will be on-site 4 days a week (Room 401) servicing 16 classes per semester.
- For Teachers: teachers will learn about the artist’s materials, tools and techniques, and developing art literacy and knowledge so experiences are not limited to the time in the art room but extend into the regular classroom. They will be present in the art room working alongside Mr Copeland.
- For Parents: parents will be invited to participate in one workshop as well as attend the year-end show of student work.
Stay tuned for our STUDIO after school program right here at PS 133! More information coming soon!
