Crocker Cubs Art Program

art-docent-samplesThe Crocker Art Program has been around for around 20 years. It is PTA sponsored, parent run, and school supported.

Students are introduced to well-known artists and their works (Monet, Picasso, etc.). They also learn basic art techniques and play with various mediums. Each year is a unique experience depending on the art docents and other parents involved.

Parent volunteers are the key to this successful enrichment program. Whether you have time to lead the art docent program in your class, or only have a few hours to support a lesson, you are welcome!

What does it take to be an Art Docent?

  • No art background is required to be a docent. A passion for supporting the class and commitment to show up and do the work is enough. Those with art experience or who are very “crafty” can use their talents in the program too.
  • Lessons start in Kindergarten and move through 6th. Each year parents can choose to be a docent for their classroom
  • A clear TB test and sex offender/background check are required to participate in the program.
  • Lesson plans, materials and art posters are provided. There is also a Shutterfly site.
  • Docents provide a 1 ½ hour lesson once a month.
  • The school has a kiln! A special clay program for the 3rd and 5th graders is managed by our clay expert, Jennifer Fredericks. Docents are asked to help with the projects.
  • Docents collaborate with teachers and the community to help students create an auction item for the Spring Jubilee. The Spring Jubilee is the PTA’s biggest fundraiser and money raised goes back into all the enrichment programs.
  • The Open House Art Show is a time when families are able to see the value of the program and students show off their work with pride!
