Evergreen Public Schools
Art Discovery Program
The Art Discovery Program provides K-5 students with an opportunity to explore Great Art in the classroom, by using fine Art Reproductions. The goal of the program is to expose students to different types of art and art techniques and to teach them Basic Elements and Principles of Art.
Why is the Art Discovery Volunteer Program important?
Looking at and talking about art encourages thinking skills: observing, remembering, comparing, questioning and making choices. Learning about art helps students to form and verbalize their own ideas, which cultivates creative thinking as well as language ability. Great art has always enriched people’s lives. Volunteers, as well as the students, find this program extremely enjoyable!
Parent volunteers teach a monthly, theme based lesson and complete an art project with the students. Monthly themes for Harmony Elementary 2012-2013 are as follows:
September: I Never Saw a Purple Cow
October: Female African American Artists
November: Sue Wall Victorians
December: Joni Eareckson
January: Modern Sculpture
February: Portraits in Pink and Blue
March: The Magical World of Bev Doolittle
May: Poem as Lovely as a Tree
June: Rockwell and His Rivals
Volunteers are always welcome!
