Green Arts is an interdisciplinary hands-on educational approach that broadens student’s thinking and problem-solving abilities. It is a collaboration between classroom teachers and the PS20 Arts and PS20 Farms Programs that started in 2013.  Our teachers work closely with the program’s instructors to ensure that what the children do outside in the garden, in the greenhouse and art studio informs and complements the work that is done in the classroom. So while the kids are digging in the dirt and expressing themselves in the art studio they are also building on what they have learned in social studies, science and other core subjects.  The program is supported by PS20 families through donations to the PTA and generous contributions from our community partners: Walentas Family Foundation, Brooklyn Community Foundation, NYC GreenThumb, Gardel’s Greene Garden, Grown to Learn NYC, Lowe’s Toolbox for  Education, Habana Outpost, and the Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project (MARP)
