Art Literacy/Literario del arte

Volunteer Opportunity - Art Literacy!


We Believe Art Literacy

  • Teaches students to THINK CREATIVELY and PROBLEM SOLVE, both which will help PREPARE THEM FOR THE FUTURE.
  • Helps students FORM MENTAL IMAGES – an ability chemists, engineers, architects, designers and inventors use to THINK UP NEW IDEAS.
  • CELEBRATES MANY PERSPECTIVES. Students learn there are many ways to see and interpret the world. Problems can have more than one solution and questions can have more than one answer.
  • It is so much more than what you see!

Become an Art Literacy Volunteer for your child’s class today!


Being an Art Literacy Volunteer takes about 3-4 hours for each lesson. All 6 lessons are ready for you. All you need to do is:

  • Come to a daytime training meeting before each new artist lesson.
  • Present the lesson to a classroom and do a hands-on art project.
  • All materials provided! Or come and just help the day of the art project.
  • Classroom times are scheduled well in advance so you can plan your calendar.
