Welcome to ArtSmart, a joint program between the PTA and the Westport Library! The program allows parents to share our appreciation of visual arts and the creative process with our elementary students. The library provides a tremendous amount of resources for classroom volunteers to expose students a variety of artists, movements, and styles of expression. Parent volunteers work directly in the classroom to introduce a work of art, artist, movement or style (i.e. street art, murals, cartooning, sculpture, etc.) and lead an artistic activity where students create their own works of art individually or collaboratively.
Towards the end of the school year, each class has the opportunity to exhibit one project on ArtSmart Museum Night. This year details for ArtSmart Museum Nights across the Westport elementary schools have yet to be determined. It is possible that our culminating event at SES will have timed admission slots or may even be virtual.
