The Art Ambassador Program is a hands-on approach to art appreciation specifically designed for elementary students and is made possible by the PTSA and parent volunteers like you!

How Do I Volunteer to Help?
Once a year, parent volunteers act as Art Ambassadors by presenting art appreciation lessons in their child's classroom (K-5th Grade). Lessons are hands-on fun and designed to enhance and complement the current art class curriculum.
Lessons include a presentation and art project. The presentation content and all necessary project materials are provided by the PTSA and volunteers will be trained prior to giving the lesson to familiarize them with the material.
No art experience is necessary. Volunteers can help in their children's's class (1-HOUR) and/or with another class within the same grade, depending on the volunteer's availability. Room representatives will reach out for parent volunteers.
An Art Ambassador goes into each classroom and within 1-hour, shows a 15-minute PowerPoint presentation and explains the project, by a dedicated Presenter. The remainder of the class time is used for completing the project and having FUN with the kids! Watch the videos above or view the links below for examples of art projects. (Project may change from year to year.)
