Art Literacy

  • Join Lake Oswego Junior High Art Literacy and See the World from the Classroom

    Volunteers Needed

    What is Art Literacy at the junior high level?

    Art Literacy augments the Social Studies curriculum and exposes the kids to the art of the regions and cultures they are studying in World and American History.

    Why be an Art Literacy volunteer?

    You will have this rare opportunity to be in your child's classroom getting to know the kids and how they learn. You'll inspire and create a love of art. You'll learn about art and have fun!

    Do I need art experience or to be good at art?

    No! There will be a training session and handouts for all of the units. The projects are simple and easy to explain.

    What is the time commitment?

    Training sessions and your classroom schedules. A training meeting takes place prior to each unit. A unit lasts a week and you may sign up for your child's class or as many classes as you would like to help with during that week.
