Art Docent Program

The purpose of this program is to help bring additional art experiences to the students of Fairwood.  It is not intended to replace the formal art instruction that our classroom teachers plan to bring to their students.  The program runs October through May.

Art Curriculum

The Fairwood PTSA provides art curriculum through Smart with Art that meet or exceeds both the Washington State Standards and the National Standards for the Art Education.  

Art Walk / Family Art Night

Our Art Walk is scheduled for the spring.  We will have LOTS of student artwork up in the hallways showcasing their hard work this year!  We ask the art docent volunteers to keep all the art the students create so we can display them at the Art Walk.

How it Works

We need at least 1 volunteer lead Art Docent per classroom to teach monthly art lessons from October through April (~ 6 art lessons).  There will be an online sign up - HERE.

Please note, before you can teach in the classroom you will need to complete an online volunteer application and disclosure form.  This must be done every year.  Click HERE for more information and link to the online application process.

Why is Art Education important?
