🎨 Art Docent Orientation 2018
My name is Lauren Daley and I am this year's Art Docent chair. I wanted to let you know that the Art Docent volunteer sign-up link is now live on MySchoolAnywhere for each classroom, and I encourage you volunteer for this fun program. We are looking for 2-3 volunteers per classroom.
For our new parents, guardians, and teachers, Art Docent is a volunteer-run art program, which is typically scheduled once a month in the classroom from October through May. There are two curriculums to choose from; one is a traditional format of artworks presented on large boards with an accompanying art project, and the other is a newer curriculum with more digital reference material along with an art project. Volunteers may elect to use either curriculum for the project, or devise one of their own, provided it meets with teacher approval beforehand.
Mark your calendar: the Art Docent Orientation meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, September 20th, after morning ceremony (8:30am) in Room 2 next to the Multi-Use Room. Please sign up this week, or before 9/20, as all future correspondence will be handled via MySchoolAnywhere. Parents/Guardians who are on the fence about volunteering can also attend the meeting if they're unsure about participating.
Anyone who cannot make these dates should contact Lauren Daley via email to arrange an individual meeting that fits your schedule. At least one docent from each classroom must attend a meeting.
For any questions, contact Lauren Daley via email.

Art & Music Show
March is national Youth in Art Month and the theme for California is "Art Builds Bridges". The show is a time for each class to display their talents. Every class picks one project that's completed this school year. We also suggest creating "Artist's Statements" - such as, "What is your inspiration for your art work?" "What influences your work?" "What does your art express?" "What makes your art unique?" "What does your art means to you?" "What motivates you to create art?" "What emotions or ideas are you trying to convey?" "How does art make you feel?" "Why is art important?" "How can art be powerful?" "What tools and materials do you use?"
