Woodside Elementary PTA
Building our 2019-2020 Art Docent Team
Easy, Fun and Engaging: We are looking for 2-4 Docents to work with teachers and students on art projects throughout the school year. PTA provides 6 projects**, that meet National and State Standards in art education, teaching our students fine art elements and techniques by emulating both classical and contemporary masters, art through the ages and multple genres. These projects are age-appropriate, easy to teach and a fun way to interact with your student and their classmates!
No experience necessary! PTA offers "Train-the-Trainer" sessions, providing Docents with supplies, lessons plans and instructional knowledge. New Docents are paired with experience Docents, to help mentor and grow Docent abilities and approaches.
Docents are encouraged to sign up for their student's class and will work directly with their teacher on when to schedule art lessons. Art projects are kept for display at the end of the year, for our annual art show!*
Get creative. Have fun!

*NOTE: The (month) indicated next to your teacher's sign-up slot is the assigned project we ask that you KEEP for the end-of-year art show. This allows us to showcase our entire curriculum, throughout multiple grades. Your class will be assigned a space for the Art Show, in which you will be able to hang at least 2 projects. We ask that 1 project be the designated month denoted, and the 2nd project is your choice!
** GOING ROGUE: Docents are encouraged to create their OWN projects, if they choose. However, they may have to provide their own supplies, if the project requires any specific materials we do not stock. Ideas can always be discussed with the Docent leadership team, and special circumstances may be considered!
