Meet the Masters
Art Enrichment for Every Student - No Art Experience Necessary!
"Meet the Masters" is a volunteer Art History and Art Appreciation program intended to acquaint children with the world of art. "Meet the Masters" seeks to cultivate a sustained awareness and interest in art by exposing children to selected artist prints (approved by Broward School Board) or appropriate mediums. "Meet the Masters" is run and done by parent volunteers (or in collaboration with classroom teachers) who have an interest and enthusiasm for bringing fine art into the classroom for the next generation. On early release days (or another time agreed on by your teacher) volunteers come into the classroom and make presentations on the lives and works of master artists, followed by an art project of the students own creation. Using reproductions of the artists' works, these presentations including the student project last about one hour. Classroom works are shared with the entire VSY community towards the end of the year at the annual VSY Arts Alive celebration in the courtyard.
Financial reimbursement is provided for materials by the PTA for the presentations up to a certain amount.
