Volunteer art docents needed

art-class-1Volunteers are needed to serve as art docents in an expanded elementary school visual arts program this year.

This is the second year of the visual arts program, which started last year in 10 elementary classrooms and is being expanded this year to 30 classrooms throughout the district’s 11 elementary schools.

Art docents are trained to deliver an art lesson once or twice a month while assisted by staff members. Each art lesson is between an hour and 75 minutes long, and lesson-specific materials are delivered to the school ahead of the scheduled presentation.

The district offers convenient and flexible schedules for docents, who are trained by Visual Arts Coordinator Kirstin Holstrom, a third-grade teacher at Centennial Elementary School. Please pass the word of the need for volunteers. Those interested may contact Holstrom at kholstrom@osd.wednet.edu.
