Famous Artists Portfolio Program
This longstanding free program allows parents, teachers, and/or community members to present reproductions of significant artworks to students in the classroom. Portfolio prints are organized into nearly 70 age-appropriate themes. Follow-up art activities are suggested for each portfolio. No artistic experience is necessary—merely an enjoyment of working with children and a belief that art matters. In order to borrow portfolios, you must have completed training in a prior year OR participate in this year’s training. All K - 8th grade students participating in this program are eligible to enter the 2018 Student Art Show, exhibited in Turtle Bay Museum January 26 – April 30, 2018.
Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 3-5 p.m., Museum Classroom.
