Marquis Studios has provided a variety of arts-in-education services to New York City public schools for the last 40 years. We seek to foster a greater partnership between artists and classroom teachers by providing arts programs as a supplement to traditional classroom teaching techniques.
Over three decades, Marquis Studios has worked with over 265,500 students, 25,000 teachers and 10,000 parents at schools and cultural institutions throughout New York City. All of these programs stress teacher/artist partnerships and the development of higher-order thinking skills (self-evaluation, application of learned skills, and critical thinking).
Marquis Studios serves a diverse population. 75% of students in Marquis programs live at or below the poverty level as measured by their eligibility for federal free lunch and breakfast programs. 25% of our programs serve Autistic and severely disabled students.
