Hello fabulous Volunteer Art Instructors!
This is YOUR webpage--dedicated to providing guidance, ideas, reminders, and information so you can be the best Artie you can be! If there's something you'd like to see on this page, please complete the form at the bottom. Thank you for all you do for our school!
You are invited to explore the art room. Just a few minutes before your pick up your student(s) or after drop off can not only help you find your way around but spark many ideas for art instruction. Remember to incorporate the elements of art in your lesson plans whether through medium, method, movement or artist. These lessons will become layers giving your students powerful context for social and emotional learning.
Additional resources for articles, lesson plans and ideas:
