• The Art Appreciation program is designed to introduce students to art and help them develop a sense of art itself.

    Statistics show that of 920 elementary school students in 52 classrooms in Boston, Cambridge and Los Angeles who were given visual and performing arts lessons for three years outscored non-program students, earning significantly higher report card grades in the core subject areas of language arts, math, reading and social studies, (“Different Ways of Knowing” Welch). With results like this you can’t afford to pass up this opportunity.

    This program only takes 15 minutes a week or biweekly. If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom, please sign up with your child’s teacher.

    If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. I look forward to leading the Art Appreciation program again this year. With your participation, I know we can have another great year.
