PROGRAMS

Art Goes to School2021 Meetings: Mondays, September 20th, October 18th, and November 15th from 9:30am to 11:30am at the Hunterdon County Historic Courthouse

Volunteers Needed: Share the excitement of visual expression with elementary school students.  

AGTS provides training - volunteers learn about famous paintings and their painters and how to communicate information about them, in the volunteer’s own style, to the most enthusiastic listeners ever—young children.

There is no need for prior teaching experience or an art education background. We will teach you what you need to know. In-school programs typically take place during the spring semester.

Contact us at: cultural@co.hunterdon.nj.us for more information. This program made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Individuals interested in sharing the excitement of visual expression with elementary school students are invited to volunteer for Art Goes to School of the Delaware Valley (AGTS) , a volunteer-run, art appreciation program sponsored in Hunterdon County by the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
