Art Docent Resources 

Art Docent checklist:  

  • You need to be a PTSA member for the current school year to participate in the PTSA sponsored Art Program.  Click HERE to renew or join!
  • Please note, before you can teach in the classroom you will need to complete an online volunteer application and disclosure form (not through the Fairwood school office).  This must be done every year.  Click HERE for more information and link to the online application process.
  • By volunteering you agree to teach one art lesson in the classroom October, November, January, February, March, and April.  It is typically a 2-3 hour monthly commitment (1 hour teaching the lesson, 1 hour for preparation, 1/2 hour hanging finished artwork). In May you will need to hang your artwork for the Art Walk which is typically two pieces of artwork per student.
  • You will need to attend the required workshop training on Friday, September 29th (unless other arrangements are made with the Art Committee).  It is being held in the school library.  
  • You will need to coordinate with the teacher/s in the Fall a schedule of when you will be teaching the monthly lessons in the classroom.  Per Mrs. Hoyle's request, no lessons will be taught in December.
  • You will need to keep an Art Portfolio for each student (will be provided for you) with ALL art projects.  If you will be displaying the art work on the wall first, please make sure the teacher knows we need to have all art work returned to the PTSA to be stored in the students portfolio.  Our Art Walk is scheduled for the Spring and need these for it.
