MEET THE MASTERS
Meet the Masters is an art enrichment program brought to the school through our PTA fundraising. Five artists are highlighted throughout each year. Assemblies are held to teach the students about the life and artistic style of each artist. Each assembly will introduce the master artist to the children via slides, prints, props, and audio games. An art element will be learned with each master artist, for example: texture, shape, color, value, line, etc.
The morning of the assembly, parent volunteers attend In-service Trainings in the Media Center (for no more than 1 hour) and are trained in an art project reflecting the work of the featured artist. (No artistic background is necessary!) Within a week of the assembly the volunteers teach the project they have been trained in, to the students, in the student's classroom.
Our schedule for Parent Trainings for the year will take place from 8:25-9:25am on the following dates in the Media Center:
October 10, 2019: Georges Seurat
December 5, 2019: Henri Matisse
January 16, 2020: Pablo Picasso
March 12, 2020: Frida Kahlo
April 23, 2020: Alexander Calder
Volunteers will coordinate with their teachers and sign up for a scheduled time slot to teach the art lesson to their class. All of the supplies will be stored in Winkos, ready and available to teach the session. Volunteers will help prepare the classroom before the lesson, pass out supplies, assist the students in terms of direction and technique, and replenish and return supply baskets to the supply closet.
If you have any questions or would like to be added to the volunteer list, please e-mail Lisa Massoumi or Michiko Inanaga.
