DEAR PARENTS,
I am pleased to inform you that P.S. 41 has won a grant which enables us to offer five free
evening art workshops for children & their parents to participate together using artists from
Marquis Studios.
Parents will be invited to select from the menu listed below. We can accommodate 25 children
and their parents at each workshop. If we have the room, you may be able to attend more than
one workshop. Please read the brief description below and select the ones that you would like
to attend. You will be enrolled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
When we receive your responses we will send you a confirmation telling you if you have been
enrolled or not. Refreshments will be provided! We’re sure to have fun together!!
All workshops are offered to Grades K through 5 and will last from 7:00-9:00 PM.
 1/7/15 (Wed.) Workshop 1—CIRCUS ARTS: Balance feathers on your nose & juggle with
one hand! Explore ways that you & your child can use themes of circus & clowning to

In the spaces provided on the tear-off, only list each workshop that you would like to attend.
