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, and at the 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
WALKING SCHOOL BUS
Help your kids build stamina and safe walking skills, increase focus at school and spend a little extra time with them: Lead a Walking School Bus route!
The PTSA Walking School Bus is back for 9 weeks (weather permitting) for the fall 2017. If you and your kids are ready to walk to Dows Lane while the weather is good, we are looking for you! Parent volunteers sponsor a once-weekly (flexible around your schedule) route to school. Lead weekly walks from your neighborhood. You'll receive coordination, support, training and gear from the WSB Committee. Bring your neighbors and meet others along the way.
