CALLING ALL ART AWARENESS VOLUNTEERS!
Do you love art or love to help out in your child's classroom?

The PTA is in need of parent volunteers to teach Art Awareness lessons to your child's class. We provide everything you need to do the lesson and all levels of artistic talent are welcome.

On a quarterly basis, volunteers pair up and teach the students about well-known artists and their works and then facilitate an art project using the style just taught. ALL teaching materials, training and activities are provided for volunteers. The students always enjoy the lessons and will amaze you with their interpretation of the art presented.

You can self-schedule the lesson with your teacher during the quarter at your own convenience and is a great way to be a part of your child's education and keep art flowing through our school!

All new volunteers will have an opportunity to have an introduction to the basics and tour the Art Awareness room.
Using signup.com, please copy the following link to sign up.
