Art Literacy

Art Literacy.

The program consists of volunteers who go into classrooms to give a visual presentation on an artist which is followed by a hands-on art project with the students. Typically, during the year, there are six different lessons presented for elementary and three lessons at the middle school level.

Volunteers are trained for every lesson they teach by a site-based coordinator at each school. The program’s curriculum at present is based on more than 100 artists, including European masters, renowned American artists, and some living, local artists.

 NO ART BACKGROUND IS REQUIRED AND ALL MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED.


If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about the Art Literacy program, please contact:
