P.S. Art

P.S. Art 2019:

Celebrating The Creative Spirit Of NYC Kids

Each year P.S. Art acknowledges outstanding artwork and exemplary instruction in grades pre-K to 12 through a citywide competition, exhibition and catalog. The New York City Department of Education – in partnership with Studio in a School and the Metropolitan Museum of Art - convene panels of artists, arts professionals and art educators to serve in two rounds of judging. Final selections highlight exemplary artwork and practice as they relate to the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Visual Arts.

This is the 12th year the exhibition is exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For catalogs of P.S. Art work, please contact Karen Rosner, Visual Arts Coordinator (KRosner@schools.nyc.gov). 

The competition is now accepting submissions (deadline February 14, 2019).

Guidelines are available in this P.S. Art Guidelines document.

P.S. Professional Development Workshop

To support teachers who will be entering work into PS Art, there will be a FREE full-day of professional development at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the fall 2019. This event will focus on looking at, analyzing, and discussing sample student artwork Pre K-12. Participants working with teams of NYCDOE art educators and teaching artists from Studio in a School will engage in collegial, lively and informative dialogues around the qualities of exemplary artwork. There will be ample time for exploring museum galleries. This workshop is a collaboration between the Office of Arts and Special Projects and Studio in a School who most generously is funding this event. This workshop is open to new teachers and teachers who for the past several years have submitted student work to P.S. Art that has advanced only to the semi-final round of judging.
