Artist Workshop

Join our Artist Workshop program and bring art to the classroom!

Do you like volunteering in the classroom and having fun? This is a great opportunity for you! Volunteer for Artist Workshop, a CRS PTA sponsored program that presents curriculum topics through the perspective of fine art examples and fun hands-on art projects. Often the highlight of the week, it is a great way for parents to connect with students, while exposing them to a whole new facet of history, science and math.

Parent orientation was held in September 12th at 7 p.m. in the Exploratory Arts room. If you are interested in this program, please contact our Artist Workshop coordinator.

How Artist Workshop Works:

There are only 5 Artist Workshop one-hour sessions held throughout the academic year. Prepared PowerPoint presentations and write-ups on the images and projects are provided for you to facilitate the presentation. All you need to do before a session is review the write-up information and images provided, gather supplies from our Artist Workshop supplies closet (all materials are provided for you by the CRS PTA), and then go into the classroom and open a child’s awareness to the wonder and beauty of art. You will give the short presentation to the students, engaging them in careful looking to understand and create meaning about the artworks. Afterwards, students make their own art project reinforcing the session’s objectives.  All sessions are specifically tied to classroom topics (science, social studies or math) as well as art curriculum. No artistic ability or art history needed to volunteer– just enthusiasm for working with students and enjoying the discovery process.
