The Art Docent program is a PTA sponsored art enrichment for all students at all grade levels. Jenny Hellman, OV Artist in Residence, designs lessons that allow students to study and practice the skills of an artist, from ancient to modern eras. Jenny creates art lessons that span materials, as well technique, so all students can experience what the artist created. Art Docent Lessons happen in the classroom five times throughout the year and are taught by community volunteers (Docents). The pieces students create are displayed outside their classrooms. One of the lessons will have students contribute to a whole school display in the main hallway north of the front office.
The Art Docent program is always looking for more volunteers (Docents) -- it is a great way to know your student's class and see the enthusiasm for this outstanding program. All Art Docents receive training to teach the lesson, support to complete the lesson, and materials to display the student art (no experience required).
