What is Art Outreach?



art_collage.jpg         What is Art Outreach?



This program is offered to our school through the Springfield Art Association (SAA).   It is designed to expose students to many different forms of art/artists.  Art Outreach relies on our parents to volunteer to go into our classrooms and teach the monthly Art Outreach program.
  • Monthly portfolios include: prints, photography, and 3-D art. The collections span the length of time, from cave drawings to the present day.

  • Portfolios are centered around a particular artist, style, or time period.

  • Portfolios include an information packet on the background of the artist and artwork, style/time period of the art, questions to ask the children about the artwork, and some may also include an art activity. 

  • The program is designed to present the artwork in a 30 min. Following the presentation there is an optional art project, some materials can be checked out and other materials will need to be purchased by the volunteer.

  •  The links on the Art Outreach page has schedules, ideas for projects and a list of art supplies that are available to volunteers.
