MASTERPIECE ART PROGRAM INFORMATION
Our Masterpiece Art Program is a volunteer art enrichment program using fine works of art as an integral part of the learning experience. Volunteers visit their child’s classroom several times over the course of the school year. The visits last about one hour.
A reproduction print of a great work of art is presented to the class and a corresponding art project is completed. Each grade level has its own desired frequency of visits, which we help you plan at the beginning of the school year.
Many of the volunteers come with little or no background in art, but have a desire to be involved in their child’s classroom in a fun and engaging way. It’s a great opportunity to share a learning experience with our young children through mutual enjoyment and appreciation of art! Kiva has an excellent on-campus research area of fine art prints with over 500 fabulous great masterpiece art reproductions, corresponding art supplies and fun, related art projects that emulate the artists style! We provide training and support all year long! And most of the time you’ll work in a group or with another volunteer!
This is a wonderful program for everyone involved. The students, classroom teacher and MAP volunteers learn about the various types of art and artists.
Our goal is to ensure that awareness and appreciation of art remain alive and flourish for the next generation, while associating art within the class curriculum. (Perhaps van Gogh’s Irises or Monet’s Waterlilies would be the selected fine art print if the class was studying flowers or nature!)
Volunteer to join the group helping in your child’s classroom! Have some fun and meet the really great school wide team of masterpiece art volunteers! Best of all you’ll enjoy quality time with your child! Call us with any questions! We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks so much to our wonderful Kiva teachers, PTO and administration for their gracious support and enthusiastic encouragement of our Masterpiece Art Program. Above all, it’s volunteers like YOU that make this program special!
