Arts at PS 173

Students have the opportunity to study music and visual arts at PS 173 from kindergarten through 5th grade.  Music students have opportunities to perform in the band and chorus at seasonal concerts and special events.  Visual artists enliven the school environment with their creative drawings, collages, and photography throughout the year, and at special Art Expo events.

For the past two years, several students have participated in the Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Competition.  This year's team was thrilled to win an "Honorable Mention" award, quite an accomplishment in this New York City-wide event.  Congratulations to the team and our art teacher, Ms. Belmond!
