We are officially listed as a staff pick on Inside Schools!
The Visual Arts Program at PS 197 strives to provide all students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth grade with a diverse range of visual arts experiences from drawing and painting to printmaking, sculpture and textile work. Students are given foundational skills in art practices, concepts and techniques that scaffold from year to year.
Please visit Ms. Alfredsons class webpage for more information on her exciting work at PS 197!
The curriculum adheres to New York City’s Blueprint for the Arts as well as the principles of Common Core.
Each year at PS 197 we hold two major art exhibitions coinciding with the Winter and Spring Galas.
