Art Literacy Needs Volunteers!

Art Literacy Overview

Since 1979, the Beaverton School District is home to an exceptional volunteer-run elementary and middle school art education program called Art Literacy.

The district's Art Literacy curriculum at present is based on more than 100 artist-inspired lessons, including European masters, renowned American artists, cultural arts, some living and local artists.  

Findley's Art Literacy program consists of six different lessons presented throughout the year.  Morning volunteer trainings are scheduled for each lesson to learn about the upcoming artist-inspired projects. 

In the classroom, 'lead' and 'assisting' volunteers work together to teach about the featured artist and assist in the art-making process, resulting in unique and creative student art productions to display and take home.  

No previous artistic experience is required and all materials are provided.  

All volunteers must have an mVP profile.
