Marquis Studios arts‐in­‐education services are an ideal way to bring the arts into classrooms and after school programs while also serving as professional development for staff. Each program is focused on a specific art discipline selected after consultation with client staff. A team of senior management and Teaching Artists design all programs to integrate the arts with instruction in academic subjects by utilizing the NYC Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts and Common Core Standards. Programs are adapted and customized to the appropriate age level and are available for grades K‐12.



Choose from a variety of activities that help parents understand the connections between arts and academics while providing a fun, hands-on experience parents and children can share. All of the programs are easily duplicable by families in their own home. These workshops can take place in schools, community centers or libraries and offer flexible scheduling including evenings and weekends. These workshops are also offered for Parents Only.

  • Paper Collage

    Parents and children are introduced to collage as a means of creating layered pictures both representational and abstract. Paper and other found materials are used as a means to consider pictorial relationships of shape, edge, size and placement. By cutting, tearing and layering paper, participants create pictures that probe the ways artists organize an image through the principles of design.

  • Paper Sculpture

    By folding and gluing paper together, participants create three-­‐dimensional objects that are functional and beautiful. Past workshops have created chairs, tables, houses, faces as well as other abstract forms.

  • Paper Mosaic

    Mosaic dates back to the days of Mesopotamia and is the art of creating images by assembling small pieces of colored glass, stone or tile. In this Parent/Child workshop, participants will use a variety of kid-friendly materials like colored paper to create, draw and decorative images together.
