Young At Art

YAA logo

Young At Art is a non-profit organization celebrating it’s 31st year of bringing the magic of art and enrichment to nearly 7,000 students across the South Bay. Thanks to the Grand View Families and PTA’s generous support, our students will have the opportunity to create six rich and meaningful art projects.  Click here for more information on this year’s projects. During each one-hour session, the students will learn about various artists, the associated art history and will experiment with a variety of media and techniques.

Young at Art Volunteer Opportunities 2013-14

We are very fortunate to have a fantastic art program, Young at Art (YAA), supported by our PTA, and run by parent volunteers. If you are interested in inspiring our kids’ creativity through art, then this is the opportunity for you!

There are 2 ways you can volunteer.  Become a Young at Art Docent or assist your classroom docent.   Click here for more information on the commitment required for each volunteer opportunity.  Deadline for Young at Art Docent sign ups are September 4.  Click here to sign up.  Once classroom docents have been assigned each docent will share with parents the volunteer opportunities available.

Kids love the Young at Art program and always look forward to the lessons. It is amazing to see kids get inspired by art, and gain confidence in their own abilities by learning there are no mistakes in art – only happy accidents. They gain exposure to different artists, movements, mediums (painting, collage, sculpture), materials, and techniques. On top of that, there is much research to support the fact that creating art helps with brain development. And as if that weren’t enough, by donating your time and energy to Young at Art, you’ll get back much more than you give.

We hope you’ll join us!
