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.
