The P.S. 261 Arts Committee organizes arts activities and residencies throughout the year, for all grades. Check out our Web site PS261ARTS.com for more information and ways to get involved!
Tanya Stanger-Minond earned her Masters degree from NYU in Visual Art Education in 2007, but says that “some of my best learning as an educator has taken place in the classroom!” Her personal artwork focuses on clay sculpture, while she also enjoys sketching and drawing. She and her family love hiking and biking, and exploring the great outdoors. She has been teaching at PS 261 since 2007 and her greatest pleasure is seeing her students year after year, getting to know them better as artists and as individuals. She also deeply appreciates the dedication of the Arts Committee to integrating art into students’ lives, and regularly adds support to their work.
