Meet the Masters
Art Enrichment - No Art Experience Necessary!
"Meet the Masters" is a volunteer Art History and Art Appreciation program intended to acquaint children with the world of art. "Meet the Masters" seeks to cultivate a sustained awareness and interest in art by exposing children to selected prints (approved by Broward School Board).
"Meet the Masters" is run and done by parent volunteers who have an interest and enthusiasm for bringing fine art to the young.
Once a month volunteers schedule with their teacher to come into the classroom and make presentations on the lives and works of master artists, followed by an art project of the students own creation. These presentations, using reproductions of the artists' works, last about one hour. Materials are provided for presentations.
"Meet the Masters" promotes an awareness of arts in our community. Through the increased activity and interest of volunteers, parents, faculty members and administrators, knowledge of the arts will be expanded.
Broward County Schools now has "Meet the Masters Volunteer Presenter Training" on video! Learn to present works of art to students in the comfort of your own home - http://www.getinvolvedineducation.com/volunteers/meet_masters.htm
After viewing the training you will also be able to download presentation materials, which contain artist information and ideas per grade level, all available online. No experience necessary as there is also a section that explains art principles and design. This is the objective when presenting, so please take the time to review.
