Art MasterpieceArt Masterpiece is a national art enrichment program that uses reproductions of fine works of art to promote art literacy in elementary school age children. The purpose is not to teach specific art/craft techniques, but rather to increase the child's awareness of art. Elements of art and principles of design are introduced in fun ways that the children can easily grasp. During an Art Masterpiece session, students will learn about a particular artist, their style of art, explore a particular piece of artwork by that artist and then create their own artwork based on the principles they have learned.
Why is art education important? Studies prove that art enhances a child’s overall education. Art encourages cognitive, analytical and creative thinking skills. It strengthens physical coordination, and develops self discipline. As children increase their awareness of art, they are more able to recognize, interpret and value the art they encounter in their everyday world.
The Art Masterpiece program is supported by volunteers. You do not need to be a teacher or an artist to volunteer. For more information about the program or becoming a volunteer, contact the school office.
