Art Department Mission Statement
At MS131 art students complete a 3 year series where they explore drawing, painting, and three dimensional design. This studio art class introduces students to the work of master artists, various art materials, and techniques. Each student keeps a sketchbook for new ideas, homework, and practice. A portfolio is also developed for each child that may be used for high school applications to various art high schools through out the city. From the murals on our wall, artwork in our halls, and annual Chinese New Year lanterns across the street in the trees art comes to life at MS131.
