Art Awareness at White Eagle is a fun way to get involved in your child’s education.  Years of research show that arts education is beneficial to students in many ways, including: academic achievement, social and emotional development, and can create a foundation to forge social bonds and community cohesion.

Art Awareness runs January through May and consists of one approximately 60 minute visit to your child’s classroom to present an artist/artwork and lead a simple art project.  It requires no prior knowledge or skill in art.  Each lesson has an easy to follow PowerPoint presentation with step-by-step instructions.  All materials are provided for you.

Please keep in mind that the artists are assigned according to the month (The only exception is January as this is the month that all volunteers will present the introduction to Art Awareness PowerPoint and lesson.).

Scroll past the Art Awareness Sign Up Links to see the PowerPoint presentations and lesson plans for each artist.  Hard copies and supplies can be found in the PTA closet.
