Art Docents

As an art docent, you will help students gain an appreciation for art.  We will help to train you and there is a pre-planned curriculum at your disposal.  You do not have to be an art scholar or renowned artist; anyone can do this! 

We're still figuring out how to best run art docent lessons for our classrooms.  Remote learning creates new challenges of how to do what we usually do in person…and how to best do it now remotely.  This district has put together a strong and more modern curriculum with great artists, artworks, lesson guides, as well as strong and appropriate suggested art projects.
