Art Literacy is an entirely volunteer run program consisting of volunteers who work with classrooms to give a visual presentation on an artist which is then followed by a hands-on art project with the students. The classroom teacher remains present during the presentation. There are six different lessons presented for students this year.
Volunteers are trained for every lesson they teach by Hazeldale's Art Literacy coordinators, Kym Lardieri and Emily Bernard. The program’s curriculum at present is based on more than 100 artists, including European masters, renowned American artists, and some living, local artists. NO ART BACKGROUND IS REQUIRED AND ALL MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED.
