P.S.51 Arts

meArt is a creative way for students to express themselves. It teaches them how to communicate visually & show others how they see the world around them. Art bridges the gaps between various languages & cultures while giving students an opportunity to share their individualism at the same time. It truly helps our children appreciate each other’s differences.

Arts at PS 51 builds skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, imagination & observational skills, confidence through self-expression, and so much more. The art process is just as important as the art product. Students learn the art process through several different art disciplines such as painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and more. Through these lessons they learn about various artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Jackson Pollock, Faith Ringgold, Romare Bearden, and many more. All art projects often incorporate the elements of art (line, color, space, value, texture, shape & form), principles of art (pattern, balance, emphasis, movement, proportion and scale), and several art movements (surrealism, impressionism, cubism, etc).

PS 51 loves the ARTS!
