Art Academy(formerly Picture Person)The Art Academy program is an art lesson and hands-on activity given by a parent volunteer once a month. There is an on-site coordinator for the program who trains all volunteers prior to entering the classroom. The volunteer will bring in a print or prints of an artist’s work and lead a discussion with the children on the composition, art concepts and the artist’s life. A hands-on activity relating to the print will follow the discussion with all supplies provided by the program. The monthly lessons will last between 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours and will be scheduled at the mutual convenience of the teacher and the volunteer.Art NewsThe 2013 Art Showcase at Chino Hills High SchoolEnjoy some of our students' art!Project Self EsteemProject Self Esteem is a school program designed to help children feel good about themselves and to help them develop positive communication and problem solving skills.
