Art Smart was developed by the PTA as a cultural enrichment program. It introduces kids to famous pieces of art in a low key, fun way by letting them observe, think, and discuss famous paintings and artists from around the world.

 

As a volunteer, your only job is to read the information that we provide, go into the classroom, and start a dialogue with the kids about the artwork. It is a fun and easy way to spend some face time with your child in the classroom. The discussion only takes about 20 minutes. Kids love to talk about art and

will benefit from it!

Thank you for volunteering!
