2012-13 GRACE ARTS Program

October 27th, 2012 No comments

Parents,

Please help bring GRACE Arts into your child’s classroom! This is a special program that the children (and the parents) really look forward to every year!

GRACE Arts is a Greater Reston Arts Center parent volunteer program sponsored by the PTA and the school.   Parents are trained to teach one hour sessions in the classroom. Each session covers a specific artist or genre. The parent will discuss the artist or genre and show a portfolio, then instruct the students in a hands-on project. In the classroom, one parent teaches and at least one parent assists. For each project we collect samples and display them for the entire school to enjoy!

 

Parent volunteers and the classroom teacher can discuss a suitable time for the sessions.  Docent Training sessions are held in the cafeteria at 9:30 AM and again at 7:00PM.  You need only attend one session: morning or evening.
