All lessons are aligned with the NYC Department of Education’s Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Visual Arts and the New York State Learning Standards. The content and duration of our in-school and after-school programs are contingent upon funding, as well as expectations that are set forth during meetings with Principals, Directors of various programs, City Agencies and other key constituents.

Types of Programs

Doing Art Together has experienced great success over the years by working with our partners to create programs that support the goals and efforts of the current learning environments that we participate in. We have created thematic based programs to support multiple types of after-school environments (Extended Learning Time (ELT), School Improvement Grants (SIG), and many more), as well as day-school programs that support specific units-of-study via STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS and Math). We also have several engaging options for Summer programming that help combat summer learning loss and provide safe environments for students and members of the community.

We maintain our goal of creating higher parent engagement by sponsoring Parent Workshops (Job Readiness Workshops that focus on resume building, interviewing techniques and online job sourcing) as well as leading Parent/Child workshops in both traditional classrooms as well as alternative education environments to support the strengthening of communication between parents and their children.

Doing Art Together (DAT) looks to partner with schools and organizations for the long-term in order to have a sustainable impact on the children and youth, their families, and their communities. We take our partnerships very seriously and work together to have Art be a catalyst for social change.

We meet our partner where they are and customize programs to address their educational development goals for their students.

DAT has an Art Education Services Contract with the New York City Department of Education to provide the following services in New York City public schools: direct services to students.
