Art Literacy

ART LITERACY PROGRAM INFORMATION

 

The St. Matthew Art Literacy program promotes visual literacy through the studies of art history and art appreciation.  The lessons introduce artists, cultures, time periods, techniques, and art mediums for the personal and unique creation of art. Students experience and experiment with a variety of art approaches.  Art is an avenue of expression that can be used across the curriculum and supports the varied ways children learn.  Research has shown that art is critical in the lives of students.  It allows them a different avenue of communication and opens them up to new ideas and new ways of understanding the world and themselves.

The Art Literacy Program is a volunteer based program. The art volunteers can be parents, but also anyone able to devote the time to the art program.  This will include being informed and willing to share their enthusiasm for the program and the process.  All volunteers must be approved by the office and have completed the Archdiocesan volunteer requirements. School parents can use Art Literacy toward their annual Share Hour requirement.
