Homemakers, retired men and women, part-time workers, parents, singles, ages 19 to 90, are invited to teach art appreciation to school children. Even if you don't know anything about art or have never taught before, it doesn't matter. We'll teach you, so you can teach them.
Learn about famous paintings and their painters in free workshops and then communicate, in your own style, to the most enthusiastic listeners ever - young children.
Join ART GOES TO SCHOOL (AGTS), a volunteer art appreciation program sponsored in Hunterdon County by the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission with partial funding provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State.
ART GOES TO SCHOOL is an art appreciation program the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission has made available to elementary schools throughout the county since 1992. Its purposeis to nurture in the school age child an awareness, interest and delight in great works of art. Through classroom presentations, K-4 grade studnets are introduced to classic paintings and help to discover for themselves enjoyment and understanding of the basic form of expression. The program was expanded to include home-schooled, private and parochial school students.
If you (or someone you know) like art and are interested in working with children, in expanding your own horizons of knowledge and visiting art museums and galleries with our enthusiastic group of volunteers, and have a few free hours available each month during the school year.............WE NEED YOU!!
