It's that time again to start a new series of Meet the Masters! Meet the Masters is an interactive, multi-media art education program that provides engaging elementary school art curriculum to schools worldwide. The curriculum has been created and tested by professional art teachers and lessons are age appropriate for all grade levels.
We will begin on Friday, October 7th where students will attend an assembly where they will learn about the history, culture and life of the Master Artist featured. They will then receive additional instruction in the classroom via technique packets that reinforce the style of the artist before students start an art activity. We will be offering the Meet the Masters program four times throughout the school year and a new artist is featured each time. We will begin this year with Katsushika Hokusai, and the other artists we'll focus on this year are Alexander Calder, Paul Cezanne, and M.C. Escher.

Our students had a great time last year and it was so exciting to see their creative minds expand with all the new art techniques they experienced. We are so grateful to be able to offer Meet the Masters again this year. The PTA would like to thank our R.H. Dana families and our sponsors for the generous donations that help fund programs like this for our students. We can't wait to see the masterpieces our young artists create!
