GRACE ARTS

Wanted!

SOMEONE WHO …wants to see faces in a classroom light up! 

                             …likes to hear children call out “Yeah! It’s GRACE Arts!”

                             …likes to learn right along with the kids.

If this sounds like YOU, then GRACE Arts is your volunteer opportunity! Work with the children at Stenwood to introduce them to different artists and styles. No experience necessary. Plenty of assistance is available. Leader and assistant volunteers are needed.

What is GRACE Arts?

It’s a PTA sponsored program established in 1976 by the Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE), to supplement and support local children’s art experiences in the classrooms. The program is based on in-class portfolio presentations that focus on a particular artist, a style of art, or a theme of art.

How You Can Be Part of It

Be a Lead Teacher—Each month, parent (or grandparent!) volunteers for each classroom spend an hour delivering a short presentation (15 minutes or less), which they have prepared with biographical and pictorial information provided by GRACE; followed by guiding the students in a hands-on (age-appropriate) art project that helps them understand a bit more about that artist’s methods and medium.  You can develop your own project, use one discussed at the monthly brainstorming session, or ask for help from one of the GRACE Arts Coordinators. 

Be a Class Assistant—Help distribute materials, help the student with their projects, and aid in clean-up. Siblings are welcome in the classroom (provide a small project for them to do as well).
