Welcome to Alberta Rider Art Literacy Page
Artist Line Up

Our vision is to provide every elementary student with an opportunity to create and appreciate art. Just like math and science, Art Literacy is a discipline in which skills are built upon each year and contributes to both knowledge and critical thinking abilities that are essential to preparation for post-high school endeavors.
Our mission is to have a district-led and parent volunteer program that exposes students to a wide array of artists, cultures, and art mediums. Funding for our program is currently and generously provided by our school PSO/PTOs as well as other donors.
Art Literacy is our school’s only structured art program – AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!
ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST COMPLETE THE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION Click here for the application
Our program relies on volunteer parents to lead a 1-hour art project for each of the artists during their assigned month in each classroom during the school year. If you’d rather just be a helper, we need plenty of those too! Artist training nights are really fun to get creative and meet with other parents. You’ll have a lot of fun! Contact Laura Priester (firstname.lastname@example.org) and get involved.
