Evergreen Public Schools
Art Discovery Program
Silver Star Elementary
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 Silver Star Elementary 2012-2013 are as follows:
September: Abstract Art
October: Wildlife Art
November: Gargoyle Sculpture
December: Georgia O'Keeffe
January: Pop Art - The Art of Roy Lichtenstein
February: The Art of Photography
March: I Never Saw a Purple Cow
April: Female African American Artists
May: Sue Wall Victorians

Volunteers are always welcome!
