  • Vision

    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.

    Mission

    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.

  • Volunteers
    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 (lpriester77@gmail.com) and get involved.
