Meet The Masters 2019-2020

What is Meet The Masters?
  • Meet The Masters (MTM) is an interactive, multi-faceted approach to teaching children about art history, theories of color and techniques, and creativity!

  • MTM is a program that our PTO has purchased to supplement the education of out students as art education is not provided by the district for all grades.  Studies have shown that art education is vital in helping motor skills, overall language development, decision making, and visual learning.

  • MTM is created by professional art teachers and has been used by thousands of schools across the United States for more than 30 years.

  • More information about the program is available here!

 
Volunteer Information                   
  • At the bottom of this page are buttons for each grade level and artist.  When you click on the button, you will be prompted to enter that password you were provided in training. After entering the password, you will be directed to a new page per grade which includes:

    • PowerPoint Presentation you will use in the classroom for ‘Introducing’ the artist

    • Presentation Folder document with the ‘Introducing’ notes to use with the PowerPoint presentation as well as a copy of the ‘Learning From’ page(s) the students will use to practice art techniques and the ‘Working With’ pages that describe how to complete the project.

    • Training video to show you step-by-step how to complete the project with the class.

  • Supplies will be collected in the PTO room from the white bins on top of the white drawer unit near the exit door.  Your supplies will be labeled with the name of the artist and your teacher.  Please return all supplies to the same location after completing your project.  Place completed artwork in the folder labeled with your teacher’s name in the white drawer unit.

  • Don’t forget that you only have an hour in most classrooms for the entire session, so be sure to look over the ‘Introducing’ section with the PowerPoint presentation and choose the parts you want to focus on.  Keep the ‘Introducing’ section under 15 minutes to allow plenty of time for the project!

  • PowerPoint presentations for all artists will be accessed in the classroom on the school server. The teacher should do this, but if she/he has difficulty finding the presentation, here are directions:

    • My Computer

    • data on 122-fp (F)
