The primary task of the Arts in Education Committee is to identify enrichment programs designed to enhance the educational experience of Garden City Students. Committee Chairs explore programs across the broad spectrum of the arts to identify those that also contain an educational value.
Exposure to the arts is valuable to learning since it stimulates creativity, curiosity, and awareness of the world around us.
The committee recommends programs to district administrators that they believe will enhance the education of Garden City students. Past programs have included artist/writer workshops to musical, theatrical or dance productions, yoga, STEAM experiences.
Calling all GC artists! The PTA Arts in Education Committee invites all K-5 art-lovers to join us for a special night of at-home art making with educators from the world-renowned The Whitney museum.
On Monday, March 27, from 7:00-7:45 pm, The Whitney will host a virtual family art-making event exclusively for GC families, bringing the magic of the museum into your home. This 45-minute Zoom experience will be led by an Educator on staff with The Whitney.
Children will be introduced to the art of The Whitney collection artist Candida Alvarez, best known for her innovative, experimental paintings full of vibrant and complex colors and forms. Children will use their own art supplies at home to create landscapes inspired by their physical, mental, and emotional experiences..
