The Art Docent Program
The Art Docent Program is a unique cultural enrichment program in the visual arts in the Washington Union School District. Trained volunteers from the school community visit every classroom each month to present a hands-on art lesson and a Picture of the Month art appreciation lesson. The goal of the program is to help students develop their natural talents and powers of observation and to feel free to express what they think and feel in a variety of art media. The Docents believe that art experience is an important part of education for all students because it builds higher level thinking, decision making and problem solving skills.
