EYES ON ART
Volunteer Presenters Needed!
Eyes on Art is pleased to present American artist Romare Bearden, who created works of art “celebrating the black American experience, which he integrated into greater American modernism”. Bearden is best known for his richly textured collages, and was also prolific in experimenting with all different mediums and styles (http://www.theartstory.org/artist-bearden-romare.htm).
Elissa Strauss and Lori Hecker are excited to take over as the program’s new Directors, along with Co-Chairs Lisa Izes, Stacey Rosenkranz, and Rebecca Rikon.
To volunteer as a classroom presenter and/or for more information about the PTSA's Eyes on Art program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The presentations will take place at:
Dows Lane during November 13th-21st and November 27th-28th
Main Street School on November 30th and from December 4th-8th.
We welcome previous and new volunteers. Through a training session, volunteers will learn about the artist, the elements of art, art project(s), and how to present to the students. New volunteers will be matched with mentors. All volunteers should attend one of the two training sessions, and a link will be made available for those who cannot attend either.
Choice #1: Monday, October 23rd, 9:30 - 11:00 am, Dows Lane Multipurpose Room
Choice #2: Wednesday, October 25th, 9:30 - 11:00 am, Dows Lane Multipurpose Room
Please contact email@example.com to RSVP or for further information.
The Neuberger Museum of Art at SUNY Purchase has a Bearden exhibit running from September 10 – December 22nd
DL Birthday Book Club
Help celebrate your child’s birthday with a unique gift to The Dows Lane Library!
When your child joins the Dows Lane Birthday Book Club, a book is donated to the school library with a special commemorative bookplate in your child’s honor. It’s a fantastic way to help grow our library collection and get your child excited about reading!
To join the Birthday Book Club, fill out the bottom of the Birthday Book Club Form and enclose your $20 donation, payable by cash or check. Around the time of your child’s birthday, we will invite him or her to come to the library to select a new book for the Birthday Book Club.
Parents of children with summer birthdays may select a date during the school year, such as a “half-birthday,” to honor their child. Your child will have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of books.
After your child selects a birthday book, we will place a permanent bookplate in it to acknowledge your gift. Participants will have the honor of being the first to check out their special book.
