Our program still needs Art Masterpiece Volunteer Guides!
We are fortunate here at Hancock Elementary to have Jonathan Arnpriester as our Art Masterpiece coordinator for this school year. For more information or if you have questions, please contact the school office at 480-883-5900.
Art Masterpiece is a national art enrichment program that uses reproductions of fine works of art to promote art literacy in elementary school age children. It is entirely dependent upon volunteer "Art Guides" at each elementary school to present a lesson planned for a particular grade level.
Lessons are taught by Volunteer Art Guides on a monthly basis, usually six per school year. They last from 15 minutes to one hour and include a "hands-on" art activity. The purpose is not to teach specific art/craft techniques, but rather to increase the child's awareness of art. Elements of art and principles of design are introduced in fun ways that the children can easily grasp. The volunteer Art Guides DO NOT have to have a background in art.
