Art Masterpiece

We are thrilled that you are interested in the Art Masterpiece Program. Below is some basic information about the “AM” program and how you can volunteer.
 
What is Art Masterpiece?
 
Art Masterpiece is a national enrichment program where volunteers use reproductions of fine works of art to promote art literacy in children. Art is an integral part of life and the Art Masterpiece Program is a chance to stimulate the students’ thought, perception and imagination. In the end, students attain a greater awareness of the world around them. Volunteers bring prints (from our portfolios in the APT room or their own) to the classroom and present a lesson and “hands on” art activity planned for a particular grade level.
What artists/concepts are taught in which grade? What does that mean? What are good examples of these artists and concepts?
