“While I was helping prepare the art packs for Art in Action, I was moved by the extensive volunteer force and community support. I'm excited to continue giving to this cause."
— Melissa Mahoney
The Art in Action Program provides a high quality, comprehensive K–8 visual art curriculum. Students learn about works of art from cultures around the world, how to look at art using art vocabulary and concepts; and how to express themselves by creating their own unique masterpieces. Supported by training classes and online resources, the unique spiral curriculum—introducing and reinforcing concepts through the 9 program levels—gives students a solid foundation in drawing, painting, and sculpture techniques. The multifaceted lessons develop students’ critical-thinking skills, creativity, visual literacy, self-esteem, and an appreciation of other cultures. Online lessons are available on demand to give teachers animated explanations and detailed, easy-to-use directions. artinaction.org
