*2nd Annual P.S.133Q Community Art and Music Library Show, a little history and hopefully a good future! – This show was created a year ago to celebrate community as well as to strengthen ties with the local libraries that our students visit and use. It is a two-evening event that showcases the art, music and writing of our students. Students, parents, families and friends come together in the spirit of community to share ideas and thoughts. These wonderful events take place in the free public spaces of our local libraries, Bellerose Branch on Hillside Ave. and Glen Oaks Branch on Union Turnpike. Both events take place during open library hours thus allowing for other community members and library visitors to see and experience the wonderful work created by students of P.S.133Q.
Last year the show featured the artwork of 4th grade students’ animal prints. This year the show will emphasize artworks from kindergarten, 1st, 2nd,4th and 5th grade. This year there will also be P.S. 133Q students performing musical pieces from a variety of grades and poetry readings by 2nd graders.
A quick look at what has been happening in art:
Kindergarten – finishing up their moody fish as they connect feelings, art and color.
1st Grade – almost done bringing dinosaurs back into the world. It’s been a great exploration of both soft and oil pastels.
2nd Grade – entered the world of 3D with their robots relief sculptures and are finishing up their robot worlds with watercolor.
3rd Grade – almost done painting tints and shades and soon their trees of life will be planted and begin to grow.
4th Grade – Identity landscapes are done and the colors and personal cultural designs are beautiful. Imaginary maps are developing as students bring their knowledge of geography into the studio.
5th Grade – The multiple perspectives of Picasso are coming into view and cubism is on the rise again.
And remember look at art, think about art and make art!!
