Memorial School Arts Alive Day

 

The goal of Arts Alive is to raise awareness of artists and the arts in the community and in the world. We do so by bringing passionate artists, from hobbyists to professionals, to share their craft with students.

Guest Artists Needed by June 1, 2018!
As a guest artist, you will give an approximately 75 minute seminar where you share your talent with students. Guest artists are most successful when they are able to actively involve students. The more activity, the more students enjoy the seminar. A classroom teacher will be present in the room with you to assist with management and to offer assistance.

In the past we have offered Painting, Ceramics, Photography, Musicians, Singing, Rapping, Dance, Gymnastics, Graphic Design, Culinary Arts, Interior Design, Finish Carpentry, Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Jewelry, Origami, Gardening, Creative Writing, Poetry, Knitting, Quilting, Weaving, Scrap booking, Card Tricks/Magician, Glass blowing, and Sculpture.

Arts Alive Day at Jacobs School

Arts Alive Day
Friday, March 23, 2018 1-2:30pm

The 10th annual Jacobs School Arts Alive Day is fast approaching!  We are looking for both guest artists and parent/guardian volunteers to make the day a success.

Arts Alive is PTO-sponsored arts-immersion day for Jacobs School students. During the school day, artists visit each classroom to demonstrate and lead the children in a wide range of art activities. In the morning, Crocodile River Music will teach the students about the music, art and culture of Africa, including a dance workshop for each grade.

GUEST ARTISTS NEEDED
We are seeking guest artists to volunteer in each classroom from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Guest artists will teach children about their chosen medium and then lead the kids in an art-related activity. Both professionals and hobbyists are welcome.

We are looking for a wide range of talents in both visual and performing arts. Past artists have included Zumba instructing, basket weaving, yoga, drama, painting, opera, martial arts, piano, Origami, banjo, guitar, culinary arts… even boat building! If you have an idea you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact me and we can brainstorm on how to make it work!

CLASSROOM VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Classroom volunteers are needed to assist the artists and the children during their classroom activities. We would like to get at least one volunteer per classroom to help from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

To sign up to be a guest artist or classroom volunteer, please feel free to contact me directly and/or fill out the form below.

Thank you for your help,
