Visual and Performing Arts
At the Louis Armstrong School, our children are immersed and exposed to the arts in a variety of ways. Children work closely with our visual arts and music teachers to learn about the history of art, for inspiration and appreciation, while also working toward creating their own works. Our scholars work on learning from model pieces, while also generating original ideas, testing different approaches, collaborating with their peers, incorporating feedback, and building resilience as they move towards creating works of art that could be shared with the community at large. We have also forged partnerships with Artist Year, Carnegie Hall, CASA and Inside Broadway to enhance experiences and multiple means of exposure for them all.
