Grand Ridge Art Docent Program

The Grand Ridge Elementary Art Docent Program is a volunteer-led program designed to bring art enrichment into our classrooms funded by our PTSA. The Program exposes our students to a wide variety of artists, techniques, cultures, and history through hands-on art making.

 

Students are also encouraged to create art for the annual Reflections art contest each fall. 

 

While the Issaquah School District is working toward providing some classroom art instruction to elementary students in the future, the PTSA and many dedicated volunteers have stepped in to ensure the students at Grand Ridge have a robust and developmentally appropriate monthly art curriculum. The program provides lesson plans and supplies for our Art Docent volunteers.  

 

During the 2021-22 school year, when volunteers are not able to enter the building yet, our Art Docent team has come up with lessons and prep the materials for our teachers to deliver the lessons and support their students during art time. This has been a wonderful opportunity to support art in our classrooms during this time. Check out the lessons below!
