About Art Masterpiece
Welcome to the Ryan Elementary Art Masterpiece Program!
Why is art education important? Studies prove that art enhances a child’s overall education. Art encourages cognitive, analytical and creative thinking skills. It strengthens physical coordination, and develops self discipline. As children increase their awareness of art, they are more able to recognize, interpret and value the art they encounter in their everyday world.
The Ryan program is supported solely by volunteers. Our Volunteers conduct 7 one hour sessions over the course of the school year –six sessions focused on specific artists and one session where our student artists create their own “Art Masterpiece”. Parents will have the opportunity to purchase gifts adorned with their child’s artwork as part of our annual fundraiser to pay for Art Masterpiece supplies.
The program also accepts cash donations of any amount. Donations can be directed towards the purchase of an art masterpiece prints to support our artist discussions or towards our general supplies fund.
