The Art Docent program opens up an amazing world of art to Lum students. Parent volunteers teach a professionally-designed curriculum monthly to each classroom. A variety of artists, techniques, and materials are introduced to the students during the year. Parent volunteers then support students in experimenting with their creativity!
You do not need to be Michelangelo or Picasso to volunteer. It is not necessary to be art literate as the work is already done for the parent volunteer. A special training session is held to become familiar with the program. All of the posters, information on the artists, activities, guidance and art supplies are provided. Volunteers are needed for each classroom. You can volunteer on a monthly basis or less frequently if your schedule is limited. Art Docent only takes 1 hour a month and the benefits to our kids are long lasting.
