Art Smart Oscar

What is Art Smart?

Art Smart is a wonderful program sponsored by North Hill PTA and run by parent volunteers. 
Through periodic in-classroom projects, volunteers enrich our children's understanding of
artists and their works while helping them to explore and express their own artistic style.

What does an Art Smart Volunteer do?

As an Art Smart Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work in classroom you select, three
to four times per year.  Parent volunteers plan and prepare (or use pre--planned projects).  The
volunteer provides 5-10 minute presentation to the class on the selected artist or art movement
followed by an interactive project experience based on that artist's work (selected piece is age
appropriate).  You will need to schedule with the teacher a time, approximately 45-60 minutes
that works for the class and you.  The time includes setup and clean-up time. 
No prior knowledge of art or art history is required.

Art Smart is an exciting program that arouses children's curiosity, gets them excited
about art, fosters creativity, and above all, the children love it!
