P.S. Art 2016: Celebrating the Creative SPirit of NYC KIDS
More than a competition... an opportunity to expand our visual arts community

Deadline Extended: February 12, 2016

P.S. Art acknowledges through an exhibition and a catalogue, artwork created by New York City public schools in grades PreK to 12. More than a competition, P.S. Art is an opportunity to build our visual arts community by reflecting on the qualities of exemplary teaching and learning. Final selections highlight outstanding artwork by our students and model practices of their teachers as they relate to the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Visual Arts. This is the 9th year P.S. Art will be exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this year from June to October 2016.
