PS 8 hosts residency programs with outside enrichment partners in chess, art, dance and drama. Visual and dramatic artists, musicians and dancers expose children to a variety of creative practices through residency programs that last up to twenty weeks. Resident artists collaborate with teachers to ensure activities are suitable for each grade level and tailored to complement subjects and themes in the curriculum.
Below is a list of the enrichment partners currently providing classes and residencies at PS 8. The list provides examples of partnerships and some of the projects completed as part of those partnerships, as well as prior partners who may reprise earlier programs.
