Art Docent Volunteer Orientation

6300930_s

Are you interested in volunteering for our Art Docent Program and helping teach art in the classroom? Join us to welcome to another year of bringing art experiences to kids! No experience is needed, just a love of art.

Our Art Docent orientation is tonight at art room at SWES at 6:30. The art room is located right across from Mrs. LeWarne & Mrs. Haugen’s kindergarten classrooms. The front door will be open so come right on down to art room. Please come, even if it not for entire time, or you still aren’t sure if this is the volunteer opportunity for you yet. We are looking forward to getting the year off to a great start with art!
See you there, and bring any interested friends and community members.

If you have questions, or what to volunteer but can’t make it, please contact Betsy Gmerek.

The 5th annual Whidbey Festival of the Arts k-12, at SWHS-(May 29, 30), is THIS WEEKEND. Please spread the word!

Saturday at 2 PM is the SWE Talent show, and then Gloria Ferry Brennan will perform on violin (time TBD).

Friday evenings performances include LMS and HS jazz bands. Smaller ensembles will play in the courtyard over Friday night and Saturday, like Island Dance groups and Island Strings.

The event is sponsored by The SWE Volunteer Art Docent Program, The Whidbey Island Arts Council Artist in Residence Program, and SWSD.

Please share the poster, and with your help, we will have an even greater attendance this year. 

We could still use some volunteers to help facilitate at the different creativity stations set up at the Festival. Shifts are about two hours long, we could really use some helpers on Friday night, from 6:30 to 8:30 and through out the day on Saturday-from about 10:45 to 5:00. It is a great chance to visit with other art enthusiasts, help kids explore a new medium and enjoy the festive atmosphere! Please get in touch with Cailyn Murray ASAP if you are interested! cailyn_m@hotmail.com
