What is a Docent? A Docent is a volunteer who leads the artist presentation in the classroom. In the GRACE Art Docent Program, parents present the digital images of works of art to the Fox Mill Elementary classrooms and give a brief presentation and lead in creating a project. Docents can download all the necessary presentation information, grade-appropriate power points, artist handouts, and project materials for the entire artist lesson. No prior art background is needed.
Please encourage other parents in your child's class (Moms and Dads alike) to be handy helpers. Explain the role to them: they show up a few minutes early to find out details about the class' project, help set up project materials, and assist while student assemble project (get extra supplies etc). Please emphasize that there is no art experience necessary and that they would only offer an hour or so of their time.
Feel free to create individual classroom sign ups - this helps promote additional help in classrooms. For example you may only need 1-2 docents per class to present the lesson but can invite your entire class to be a handy-helper. Using a personalized sign up for your classroom really helps you get at least 4-6 helpers for each Grace Art lesson (which is a huge help with grades K-2).
