|Masterpiece Art||It is based solely upon parents who volunteer to visit classrooms to promote art literacy in children from Kindergarten to Eighth Grade.
Art Masterpiece lessons are pre-planned, last approximately 45 minutes, and include a “hands-on” art activity. The purpose is not to teach various art/craft techniques, but rather to increase the child’s awareness of art. We accomplish this by introducing the students to various elements of art and principles of design in fun ways the students can easily grasp. Art supplies are provided.
Check out Art Masterpiece 2015!
