    PS 166 Art Fair

    PS 166 Kid's Art Fair

    Wednesday, June 5th from  6-8 PM


    Each year we host a Kid’s Art Fair. It is a big event held in our school’s cafeteria. Each student has one piece of framed art on display. These framed pieces are available for purchase at 30.00 each. A portion of the money goes toward funding the materials used throughout the year in the Visual Arts Studio Classroom, and some money funds art related field trips. Parents who can, either donate time to help pre, during, or past the fair. Other parents donate refreshments and food items for our food table. Children who attend the event must be attended by an adult at all times. Strollers are not allowed in the cafeteria, as there is limited space. In addition, there is a one dollar raffle for three art related prizes-the drawing is done in school!

    Please consider volunteering! I can’t do it alone! And please come see the show and see how hard your children have worked on these fantastic projects!
