Art Masterpiece is a national art enrichment program that uses reproductions of fine works of art to promote art literacy in elementary school age children. Elements and principles of design are introduced in fun ways that children can easily grasp. During a one-hour Art Masterpiece session, students will learn about a particular artist, their style of art, explore a specific piece of artwork by that artist, and create their own artwork based on the principles they have learned.
Studies prove that art enchances a child's overall education. Art encourages cognitive, analytic, and creative thinking skills. It strengthens physical coordination and develops self-discipline. As children increase their awareness of art, they are more able to recognize, interpret, and value art they encourter in their daily lives.
The Frye Art Masterpiece program is run by fabulous parent volunteers. Our volunteer "art guides" conduct six one-hour lessons in each classroom over the course of the school year. No prior experience or artistic talent is required; you only need enthusiasm! We invite you to be a part of this fun and rewarding experience. All lessons are pre-planned and all art materials are supplied.
