Art Literacy RGS 2018-2019

Event Chair: Naomi Hand


In addition to Riverdale's weekly Art classes, our children receive a brief lesson each trimester about an artist or art style and have an opportunity to do an art project inspired by that topic each. These Art Literacy lessons are facilitated by parent volunteers, with consultation from Ms. Randall.

Over the course of the year, Art Literacy parent volunteers are asked to (1) attend three, one-hour training sessions, (2) schedule the lesson with the classroom teacher and (3) facilitate the 50-minute lesson each trimester. There are two trainings offered per lesson--just choose one to attend.  Those parents interested in LEADING Art Literacy lessons in the classroom are required to attend the three trainings.  (Those parents willing to ASSIST the Lead parent in the classroom need only help in the classroom on lesson day.)  Art Literacy is a fun opportunity to get involved in the classroom, and no art skills or art knowledge is required.

This year we will be learning about TBA

The 2018-19 volunteer training sessions will be Monday and Tuesday mornings the weeks of TBA.
