Gateway to Art
Gateway to Art's mission is to encourage the creative and mental growth of elementary school-aged children through meaningful art experiences, which empahsizes self-expression.
We are comprised of five schools in Westchester and Culver City: St. Anastasia, St. Augustine,
St. Jerome, Visitation and Westcheseter Lutheran. Over 80 volunteer docents teach more than 2000 students in elementary and middle school.
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.
