Meet the Masters - Volunteer Manual

Meet the Masters

Meet the Masters is a VHES PTA sponsored interactive art program in which the students not only learn about master artists, but also create art inspired by these artists. The students will learn about five artists during the school year. They are introduced to the artist at an assembly, and then rotate through the Meet The Masters art room to create their own piece of art. Parent volunteers are trained to teach the students how to execute the projects with teacher supervision. We provide the students with the highest quality art supplies to complete their art with. Students are introduced to oil pastels, water color crayons, drawing chalk, paints and how to use each tool as an artist. At the end of the school year these pieces of art are brought home for parents to treasure.
