Five classrooms still need Art Docent volunteers. Can you help?

We are currently looking for 1-2 volunteers to serve as an Art Docent in each classroom. The following classes do not have docents: Kim (1st grade), Yamamoto (1st grade), Flett (2nd grade), Hoffman (3rd grade), and Ogden (5th grade). The Art Docent Program gives students hands-on learning experiences that enrich their development. It gives them an opportunity to express their feelings and ideas, freely, in a variety of mediums while teaching them how to follow a process to get amazing results. This is true creative thinking for the 21st century!   To learn more or to volunteer, click here.
