• PTA Art Party Updates

    To All Family Members, Caregivers and Friends of PS 34, 

    The PS 34 Parent Teacher Association is excited to bring back the Art Party, a Benefit Auction. The event will be held at the Dobbin Street (located at 64 Dobbin Street) event space in Greenpoint. The Art Party was historically a very successful PTA fundraiser and a beloved fun celebration of the arts for our school community. With the first Art Party since the pandemic, we expect a packed house this year. Our goal with this fundraiser is to help support and expand the Arts in our beloved public school.

    If you are an artist, we would be grateful if you can offer your unique support by donating art to be auctioned at the event. Your donation will make a huge difference in the lives of PS 34 students by providing much needed funding for enrichments such as Eckford Street Art Studio, dance programs, music assemblies, and more. All artwork donated will be auctioned at the Art Party and proceeds will go directly to PTA-funded enrichments in the next school year.

    Art Donation can be picked up in the main office, or you can fill out the Google Form, which can be found  here. Please return the completed form to the PTA by April 15th, 2023, through the mailbox in the office or by email to We are happy to arrange a pick-up, if need be, when your donation is ready. In addition, any artists who donate to the auction will be invited to attend the Art Party.

    The PS 34 Parent Teacher Association Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. All contributions will be tax deductible to the extent permitted under the law.

    Thank you for your support! Sincerely, 

    The PS 34 PTA Art Party Committee
