Would you like to have a meaningful job in your student's classroom? Signing up as an Art Docent is a great way to connect with your student's classmates and teacher and it's fun, too!
Here's how it works:
- You schedule one lesson a month with the teacher --at a time that works with your schedule. (You can schedule more than one lesson, but most Docents do one per month.)
- PTA supplies the materials -- we have loads stocked, or if there's something special you want, we may be able to order it for you.
- You supply and lead the lessons. We pay for you to go to some training, we have a few ideas up in the supply room, you can come up with your own ideas, or you can get friendly with Pinterest and other Google-able resources.
- Students supply the enthusiasm!
Elementary kids love it when parents come into the classroom. If you're a talented artist, great! If not, that's great too -- it's wonderful for kids to see adults making art even if it's not museum-ready. It's the perfect way to convey that art should be for everyone!
