Art Docent Lessons

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!

The art docent program is a fun way to spend time in you own child’s classroom, or to help out in another classroom, in a way that you and the kids will love. We want to make this as easy and enjoyable as possible for our awesome docents. We hope that the links to the lesson plans and videos provided below will help you prepare in advance so that you can arrive feeling ready to inspire (and be inspired by) our eager young artists.

Training videos for all art docent lessons are available to view our YouTube channel: BVUSD Art Docent Lessons.
