Art Vistas Overview
What does an Art Vista Docent (aka volunteer) actually do?

Being an Art Vistas docent is easier than you might think! Here is an overview of what you'll need to do:

  1. Sign-up to volunteer for Art Vistas in your class via MySchool Anywhere.

  2. Attend the Alta Vista Art Vistas kick off meeting on Friday, September 6th at 8:15am at the lunch tables.

  3. If you are brand new to Art Vistas, plan to attend one general training session. Art Vistas provides a really great general training to equip you with the art terminology and concepts that will be covered in the Art Vistas program. The training is less than 2 hours.

  4. Attend two grade-specific training sessions: The grade-specific training is offered in September (for the first three lessons/sets) and again in January (for the last three lessons/sets). The trainings are less than 2 hours long and they will prepare you for your classroom presentation of prints and show you how to do each project step-by-step.  You will also get the curriculum sheet for every set.  These trainings are extremely helpful and someone from your class must attend.

  5. Schedule your sets:  Touch base with your teacher to find the best time and date for each set (lesson and project) and then sync up with the other docents in your class to make sure everyone can make it.  Aim for at least 1 hour to 1.5 hours for each set.  Be sure to reserve the dates and time for each set under the "SignUp Genius" page

  6. Classroom session:  On the day of the set, pick up the prints and a materials bin from the Art Vistas closet (next to classroom 6).  All the materials will be prepared for you.  Go to the classroom to present the prints and hands-on project just as you've learned in the training!  Clean up and bring the prints and materials back to the closet. 

  7. Prepare for the Art Show: Docents from each class are responsible for matting, labeling and hanging the art for your class. Guidance and materials will be provided.
