"Meet the Masters" is a volunteer Art History and Art Appreciation program intended to acquaint children with the world of art. "Meet the Masters" seeks to cultivate a sustained awareness and interest in art by exposing children to selected prints (approved by Broward School Board).
"Meet the Masters" is run and done by parent volunteers who have an interest and enthusiasm for bringing fine art to the young.
Once a month volunteers schedule with their teacher to come into the classroom and make presentations on the lives and works of master artists, followed by an art project of the students own creation. These presentations, using reproductions of the artists' works, last about one hour. Materials are provided for presentations.
"Meet the Masters" promotes an awareness of arts in our community. Through the increased activity and interest of volunteers, parents, faculty members and administrators, knowledge of the arts will be expanded.
More helpful information about how to get started is in the Meet the Masters Manual you can find in the documents section of this website. You will also find files with the art works that are presented in each grade level. Contact your child's teacher to become a Meet the Masters volunteer today!
