PS 154 ART GALLERY
Sat, Feb 9 from 12:00-3:00pm
FREE admission with refreshments available for purchase
Explore each grade’s project, and enjoy the incredible variations from student to student! Kindergarten explored Kandinsky's flowers. First grade tried collage, with inspiration from Matisse. Second Grade went back in time to learn about ancient Namibian charcoal drawings. Third Graders made self-portraits influenced by the color work of Paul Klee. Fourth grade learned about Hilma af Klimt's work, and made traditional and abstract still life. Fifth grade followed the pencil lines of Picasso by recreating some of his master drawings...upside-down!
We need volunteers to help install and deinstall work! VOLUNTEER

THURS, FEB 28 AT 6:30 PM IN THE MMR
*Please* join us for the third book club meeting! For this half of the school year, we are doing a deep dive into the work of Dr. Laura Markham, a psychologist, parenting expert, best-selling author and mom who happens to be local to Brooklyn! Her writing and coaching are beautifully aligned with the PS 154 Parent SEL Committee’s goals of parenting through building connection, positive discipline and deepening our children’s and our own emotional intelligence.
Book: “Peaceful Parents, Happy Kids,” by Dr. Laura Markham
