In January 2018 the Arts Council launched an art appreciation program for third grade students in Chelan and Manson, held once a month from September to May. Our volunteers work with teachers to present a different artist, such as Mary Cassatt, each month. Students learn about the artist, study a selected artwork and learn the artist’s technique. Then they are tasked with creating their own art project in that artist’s style. Students, teachers and parents continue to express great enthusiasm for the program.
The Arts Council is always looking for volunteers to help with this exciting program, sharing the inspiration of art with our children in Chelan Valley. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Mera Marquet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
