The PTA is proud to sponsor the Shoreline Schools Art Docent Program at Briarcrest! Art Docents are volunteers that bring four art lessons a year to all of our students. We cover a wide variety of topics, from world renowned artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Gustav Klimt to local artists like Daly Chihuly. We also cover various art styles and materials, such as culturally important art forms like "Chigiri-e" from Japan, and the very earliest known human art in the form of cave paintings from around the world!
While this year will look a little different, our Art Docents are still committed to bringing art and fun into our students' lives. We are planning to post a new video lesson every month and you can do the project any time at home. We would love to see photos of the art you create! We will be using a website called Padlet where kids can upload their art to share with others. Think of it as having your art hanging in the hallways at Briarcrest!
Please visit our Padlet website to see all of our video lessons and our virtual hallway art exhibit! We hope you can participate. Remember, you can do any project at any time. There's no need to do it the same month the lesson was posted. Do what you can, when you can! We want this to be fun. Everyone who participates will receive a Briarcrest Bulldogs Artist Sticker. We look forward to seeing your art!
Our first video lesson is live! Now that the colors are changing on the trees, this is a great time to do this autumn inspired project! It's beautiful and easy, too!
Remember, if you do this project, take a picture and post it to the Art Docent wall!
