IN-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Building Community Through Collaboration

Whether it’s Family Art Nights, Professional Development Workshops for educators or In-School Residencies, MFTA can have a positive impact on your school.  MFTA teaching artists encourage the reuse and repurposing of materials and show school staff how simple changes can result in more materials to support classroom programming. Teaching Artists train staff and together they lead classes with hands-on activities that inspire students to look differently at materials, resources and their everyday environment.

 

IN-SCHOOL RESIDENCIES

With skilled teaching artists leading the way, MFTA’s Creative REuse programming is brought to life with projects that integrate into the curriculum. MFTA’s philosophy of using materials to support hands-on learning helps students make more meaningful connections to their studies.

Free supplies for Creative REuse programming are provided to qualifying facilities across New York City. All in-school residency programs can be structured to meet the needs of the students, the staff and the school community.

FAMILY & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT EVENTS

MFTA’s Creative REuse philosophy can be introduced into your school at Family Art Nights, School Fairs and community building events.

Organized art presentations and workshops are executed by an MFTA teaching artist and include an activity, materials and reusable lesson plans.

If you are interested in hosting an event at your school or community organization, contact MFTA we will work together to customize a program that works for your group. Click Here:
