Picture This!

January’s Picture This!

Diego Rivera

The Lake Chelan Arts Council proudly presents Picture This!, an art history and appreciation program for the third grade students of Manson and Morgan Owings Elementary schools.
 
Our mission is to introduce and instill interest in Art appreciation at an early age. With Art funding drying up it is important for people who are passionate about art to take the reins on Art education. And as one of my favorite quotes states, “Creativity is contagious, Pass it on!” – Albert Einstein.

Beginning in January 2018, once a month, volunteers will present biographies on a chosen artist and discuss their artistic methods. Students will view a print of the artist’s work and be led in a project suited to the month’s presentation.

We would be very happy to include parent volunteers or any interested people in our program. You don’t have to be an artist or even know anything about art to participate in the program. If you like learning about art and are willing to have fun with the children as they discover masterful art we would love to have you join us!

We are having a volunteer meeting Friday December 8th at Chelan Valley Hope at 6pm. We welcome any and all to learn more about the program. I will be presenting and explaining the project and artist for January, Diego Rivera.
