Welcome to St. Matthew School's Art Docent Information Page!
Our Art Docent program is staffed by parent volunteers who commit to teaching one art lesson per month (October - May) to a specific grade. Our curriculum is comprehensive and integrated over a nine year period. Throughout the course of his or her education, a St. Matthew student will learn about:
Grades 5, 6, and 7 go on field trips annually to the Frye Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Seattle Asian Art Museum, respectively, while the 8th grade enjoys a walking tour of downtown Seattle public art.
In addition to teaching about art, the Art Docent program supports other areas of the St. Matthew School curriculum including: Religion, Social Studies, Math, Language Arts, Science, Geography, and Fitness & Health. The program stimulates abstract thinking and helps to develop fine and gross motor skills.
