Young At Art is a non-profit organization with many years 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 up to six rich and meaningful art 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.
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 to volunteer:
Once the classroom lessons are scheduled, Docents will ask for parent volunteers to assist with each lesson. Assisting parents will help set up before and clean up after the lesson, as well as distribute materials and assist students during the lesson as needed. This is a 2-hour time commitment per lesson (1/2 hour each for set-up and clean-up, and 1 hour for the lesson itself).
How to sign up:
Watch for an email from your classroom Docent (late September/early October) asking for volunteers.
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.
