4 Volunteer Guiding Principles We have 6 art lessons and one Art to Remember fundraiser creation lesson over the course of the year (Fourth grade will have 5 lessons) Grade Level Coordinators will organize a practice session before each art lesson. Make every effort to attend as you will be able to plan for your delivery, share ideas and create the art project before getting up in front of the kids Supplies for each art lesson will be in a bin by grade level. Please pick up the bin from the workroom before going to the classroom to deliver your lesson. Please return the bin in the same condition for the next class. If you are running low on supplies, restock from the cabinets. If the cabinets are running low, please contact Angie Luther. Schedule your class sessions ahead of time with your teacher Do not overlap conducts during the same time as any other art sessions at your grade level and make every effort to not overlap with other grade levels Lesson schedules will be maintained on a Fulton Art Masterpiece Calendar located at Updates should be submitted to your Grade Level coordinator. Be sure to block 1 ½ hours (15 minute setup/cleanup at the beginning/end)

5 Be sure to display the art work outside the teachers room after each lesson is completed - preferably on the bulletin board but the brick walls work as well. All art lesson creations are to be kept in a student portfolio in the teachers room after they come down from the walls. Portfolios will have covers which highlight the artists covered during the year. You should create the portfolios prior to the first art lesson. One art lesson per class will be displayed in the main hallway during the months of March and April. You will be notified which lesson from each class will be displayed during the Art Walk. This will ensure we have a wide variety of displays and also help you prepare for the yearend presentation. For example, some artwork is made into a single masterpiece which you will want to save. Classroom code of conduct Let the students do a lot of the talking. This is as much about them using their imagination and inquisitive minds as it is about them learning facts about artists and artwork. Please do not bring candy or treats to the classroom as we dont want any students to feel left out. Volunteer Guiding Principles
