*In Case You Were Wondering*
Can we provide Art Docent lessons during remote learning?

YES!! We can still provide Art Docents during remote learning!!

Learning about art is so important. Northshore School District is encouraging schools & PTAs to work together to ensure art is taught to EVERY student. Our Art Docent Coordinators have been working to figure out how to provide students with art supplies, and make sure there are lessons plans for each grade available that are suitable for remote projects. 

 
Did you know that our schools don’t provide art teachers due to budget constraints? 

To ensure there is still art in our school, our PTA provides art lessons in every classroom through the Art Docent program! Isn't that amazing!?!

We rely on MANY volunteers to keep the program running. Volunteering to teach art is a great way to get into the (actual or virtual) classroom and support art in our schools.

 
What is an Art Docent?

An Art Docent is a volunteer who takes art into a classroom at Canyon Creek Elementary.

The Art Docents can be one person, two people or a team working together for each class. Historically, the Art Docents provide an art project about once a month. During remote learning, Art Docents will work with teachers to figure out frequency and best time to provide an art lesson.

 
You Do NOT Have to Be An Artist or a Teacher!!!

Art docents are given online access to an Northshore School District art portal full of lessons, guidelines and tips. For remote learning, docents will be provided with pre-made slideshows of the art lessons (through the art portal) to use through Zoom. 

There are also plenty of other resources, including the support of three coordinators and a myriad of experienced docents ready and willing to help.

In past years, at the end of the year, the entire team of Art Docents puts on our annual Art Gala. This is an evening viewing where two items from every student are put on display for Canyon Creek families to enjoy. To adapt to our remote learning model, we may do a Virtual Gala to showcase and celebrate the students art.
