The Art Enrichment program is a supplement to the art curriculum which exposes students to a variety of artists, artistic styles and media. Two or three parent volunteers lead a one-hour lesson in their child’s classroom three times a year. The lesson consists of a discussion of the artist and an age-appropriate art project in that artist's style. The presentations and projects are arranged with the teacher and can last anywhere from 30-minutes to an hour.
Ideas for each lesson are in folders in the canvas bags in the art closet, along with all the art supplies you should need. Posters and books related to the art works are also available in the art closet.
Anyone can volunteer, as long as they have an interest in art, a willingness to spend time preparing for each lesson, and, most importantly, are not afraid to get messy, experiment and have fun! A background in art or art history is not necessary. Art Enrichment is a fantastic way to share your artistic talent and use your creativity!
