About

Instructors are experienced and qualified, guiding children in an engaging and educational environment focusing on the creative process while developing skills in the arts.

Funding

During the close of the school year in June 2019, the Discovery PTSA general membership unanimously approved the funding of this program to drastically improve our student's artistic education as well as alleviate volunteer stress from having to teach the lessons.

At the start of the school year or when a child enrolls at Discovery, a $25 art fee will be collected; $15 for the Museo arts lessons and $10 for non-Museo art lessons. The balance of the program's cost, $12,190, will be offset by funding from Discovery PTSA.

 
Volunteer

While this new program does replace the former volunteer-led art docent program, there are still opportunities to volunteer and help during an art lesson instead of teaching it. An approved volunteer application is required. Museo classroom schedule. Any additional questions about volunteering can be sent to our Art Lesson Volunteer Coordinator, Ashley Munoz-King.


Classroom Gallery

Museo hosts an online gallery just for Discovery, where you can view by class all the amazing art work that will be created throughout the year.

 

Thank you!

This new program would not be possible without donations to the Discovery PTSA by friends and families like yours. These are your generous donations in action and we are are appreciative.
