The Gateway to Art Program

Our process begins with the Design Committee which consists of two members per school. The Committee culls through projects submitted by local artists and selects six projects for the following school year.

Each month one of these selected local artists teaches the volunteer docents their original art project. The projects are specifically selected to present a variety of mediums, a wide range of artistic influences and production methods. During the workshop, the docents are taught and create the same project that they, in turn, will teach the children.

The project is then taught to students ranging in age from 4 to 14. Gateway to Art culminates the year with Art Shows at each school, with every child represented.
