Art Parent Responsibilities & Goals

Art Parent Responsibilities

Meet with the classroom teacher and set up a regular classroom schedule. Coordinate curriculum with the teacher if he/she wishes to integrate an interdisciplinary “link” to another subject.
Show up at the scheduled art class time. If you cannot make it, please notify the teacher so they can be prepared for the extra classroom time.
Mount and label student artwork and help set up art displays in the classroom and in the halls. Assist in preparing artwork for contests and for exhibit outside of your school building in public places.
