 Arts Day Festival
PS261 Boerum Hill Brooklyn 
February 1, 2013

Here's a really fun video from last years festival by the dynamic duo 
Gale Mayron & Seth King:



This year I Co-Chaired the Arts Day Festival with Kendra Foley and with
much generous help by members Ellen Levine, Rick Knutsen, Cena Crane, Ellen Neises,
Claire James, John Payne, Thomas Seltzer, and the PS261 art teachers 
Haya Moline and Tanya Stanger. 

The Arts Day is an annual festival at PS261 organized by members of the
PTA Arts Committee in collaboration with teachers, parents, students and the
community. On Arts Day, regular classes are suspended to celebrate the creativity
of the teachers and students who make the PS261 school life rich in art. 

The second annual Arts Day, held on February 1st, brought over 50 artists into
the school for a day of visual art, theater, dance, design and music. Thanks
to all the artists that offered their talents, every class in the school 
participated in a hands-on workshop, a performance in the auditorium,
and school wide art projects.

Photos that I took of other workshops & assemblies during the second annual 
Arts Day, February 1, 2013 can be seen here:
