Art Goes to School is Accepting New Volunteers
Art Goes to School is a non-profit volunteer organization, who bring art appreciation classes to elementary school children.
Our volunteers make fine art accessible to elementary school students; we bring to the children information in an impartial, instructive, informal presentation; we encourage the pupils to “look, listen, and feel” art.
Art plays an important role in developing a child’s imagination and in appreciating the works of a wide cross-section of peoples and cultures. We use reproductions that run the gamut from cave to modern art. We include European, American, African-American, Native-American, Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, and African works in our portfolios. The children learn about pieces from varied communities around the world. We use over 900 different prints by over 300 different artists in our presentations.
Art Goes to School provides workshops and lectures to train our volunteers. There is no need for prior teaching experience or an art education background. We’ll teach you what you need to know.
Art Goes to School is currently organized into chapters in 44 school districts throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. Each chapter sets its own meeting times and school visitation schedules. For more information, click on Join AGTS.
To volunteer for the local chapter, please contact Kimberly Moore-Woerle at Kimberlyathome@comcast.net.
People of all ages who enjoy working with children and are excited about art become Art Goes to School volunteers!!
