BVUSD is very fortunate to have a very rich art program that includes not only a volunteer-led docent program but also our very own artist-in-residence. Students have diverse opportunities to express themselves through the medium of art with professional instruction and class interaction. The importance of art is highlighted through relevant art history, structured to the curriculum and abilities of the different grade levels. Through the art-making process, students develop confidence, skills and practice constructive thinking. Students are also engaged in the creation of unique works of art for BVEF’s annual Valley of the Arts fundraiser.
The art docent programs at Yulupa and Strawberry schools offer grade level curriculum-related art lessons led by parent volunteers.
This program relies on BVEF donated funds for arts supplies, and especially the generous donation of time by parents who volunteer to assist with lessons. A big thank you to all who can and who do volunteer!
