Art @ 29


Art for K-5

Art for Students in grades K-5 is taught by Kristen Adamczyk, who has been an art educator for more than 20 years. She has taught at PS29 over 16 years. Before that, she worked as a visiting artist. Kristen completed her BFA at Massachusetts College of Art and her MA at UNM in Albuquerque. Besides teaching at PS29, Kristen co-wrote, and administered a four-year arts grant from the Annenberg Foundation and a 2016 research grant through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).


Kristen's teaching philosophy incorporates history, science, and math with art. She believes that children make real-life connections of these subjects through discussion and making art. She also believes that young artists can create meaningful art while standing or sitting! She is a strong supporter of active learning.


Kristen is also a proud parent of three boys: Alejandro, Tomas, and Felix (all PS29 alums)! Her family balances outdoor activities (especially hiking in the Adirondacks) with visits to art museums. She is also an encaustic painter, exhibiting nationally and locally.
