About the Art Docent Program

The Art Docent program at Moorlands is funded by the PTA and comprised of parent volunteers who bring fine art to our students. Art Docents choose pieces of work pre-identified by the district and in-line with the district art curriculum. They then provide an opportunity for our students to experience the process of creating art through a variety of mediums. You can read more in depth about the program by visiting the District Page

Program Goals

  • To familiarize elementary school children with artists in history.

  • To examine elements of art that the children can apply to their own creative endeavors.

  • To acquaint the children with varied media as a means of expression.

  • To emphasize that lessons are a springboard for creative exploration rather than being limited to information gathering.

  • To establish the legitimacy of art as a critical part of the basic curriculum.
