Volunteer Art Docents: Please save the date! The annual Artistic Support Conference - presented by the Issaquah Schools Foundation - is Saturday, October 13 at Clark Elementary School in Issaquah. This daylong event offers volunteer art docents the opportunity to learn new mediums, create examples of lessons, get to know other docents, and develop a network of support throughout the Issaquah School District.
Art education in our elementary schools is solely funded by PTSAs, with volunteer instructor training and lesson plans provided by the Issaquah Schools Foundation. More than 50 lesson plans will be available during the new school year. Each lesson plan is aligned with Washington State's Visual Arts Standards and teaches visual arts concepts as well as social emotional skills, science, math, language arts and social studies.
During the 2017-18 school year, more than 550 volunteer art docents provided 8,500 hours of classroom instruction. We truly appreciate the generosity of the PTSAs for funding art education - and all art docents for sharing their time and talent with our students!
