Students at PS 219 are exploring their identities and how their life experiences contribute to making their community unique. To create art that directly reflects this idea, students made individual artworks using drawings and collage materials to then put together and produce a larger collective piece. The curriculum continued with an introduction to map making via mapping out the school building and elements of its environment. Currently, students are beginning to make connections between themselves and members of their community through water color self-portraits using shapes and symbols.
