P.S. Art 2015: Celebrating the Creative SPirit of NYC KIDS
More than a competition...
an opportunity to expand our visual arts community
P.S. Art annually acknowledges outstanding artwork in grades PreK to 12 through an exhibition and catalogue. The New York City Department of Education and Studio in a School convene panels of artists, arts professionals and art
educators to serve in two rounds of judging. Final selections highlight outstanding artwork of our students and exemplary
practices of their teachers as they relate to the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Visual Arts.
