Art Literacy 

​

Art opens the heart and mind to possibilities and fuels the imagination. It is a process of learning to create ourselves and experience the world in new ways.



The program consists of volunteers who go into classrooms to give a visual presentation on an artist which is followed by a hands-on art project with the students. There are six different lessons presented throughout the year. Volunteers are trained for every lesson they teach by the activity chair coordinator.

A district-wide, volunteer-staffed art program that introduces the students to six artists throughout the school year and allows them to create artwork mimicking those artists.Learn more about Beaverton School Districts Art Literacy Program.
