• Picture of the Month Art Appreciation Lessons

    The Picture of the Month docents bring a reproduction of a different masterpiece painting to each classroom once a month, beginning with Renaissance Art in September and progressing to Modern and Multi-Cultural Art in Spring. The prints hang in the classroom where they become part of the students' "visual memory". The docent encourages the students to discuss the work of art, the period of history or culture that it represents, and their own observations and reactions to the painting. This is a time for students to learn specific vocabulary needed to discuss art and to learn more about artists and their contributions to our world.
