Become a Classroom Docent
Our volunteer classroom docents are typically parents or family members of students, but other community volunteers are welcome! Classroom docents attend four training nights each school year where they actually learn the project and then take that project and teach it in the classroom. They are given all the artistic materials and training tools needed (artist film, power point presentation, lesson plan and more!) to make it a great experience for the students. If you are interested in becoming a classroom docent please write to (Please note that all classroom volunteers working in the classroom must have a current fingerprint record on file in their chosen school's front office).
