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 facilitate a related art project with the students.
Monthly themes for Burton Elementary 2012-2013 are as follows:
September: Pop Art – The Art of Roy Lichtenstein
October: The Art of Photography
November: I Never Saw a Purple Cow
December: Female African American Artists
January: Sue Wall Victorians
February: Joni Eareckson

We appreciate our volunteers! Thank you for all the support from the teachers and all the help from volunteers that make this program happen!
Volunteers are welcome!
