Art in Action


Art In ActionHatch Elementary School is fortunate to have Art in Action, a comprehensive visual art curriculum, generously funded by the Hatch PTO. Art in Action is a parent volunteer run program that provides Kindergarten-5th graders with a high quality art education. Each grade level has 12 sequential, age-appropriate lessons that give students a solid foundation in drawing, painting, and sculpture techniques. The multifaceted lessons develop students' critical thinking skills, creativity, visual literacy, and self esteem, as well as an appreciation of other cultures.

What is Art in Action?

Art in Action is a nonprofit organization dedicated since 1982 to bringing visual arts education to the classroom. Art in Action fosters the educational development and creativity of children across America through innovative visual arts programs and communities. We believe that a quality art education is critical for every student's preparation for success in the 21st century, and we actively assist schools in implementing a comprehensive, standards-based visual art program.

The Art in Action program enriches the lives of thousands of students each year in public and private schools and after school enrichment programs through an engaging, hands-on curriculum that teaches art history, art appreciation, and art techniques. Through the training and support of educators and volunteers, Art in Action seeks to make visual art an integral part of every student's education.

The Art in Action curriculum is fun to learn and easy to teach, even for non-artists. The lesson plans are designed to be easy to follow and all art supplies and instructions are included. Art in Action is a great way to get involved in your child's class and contribute to our school. Without the help of generous parent volunteers, our Art in Action program would not be available to all students.

To volunteer, please speak your child's teacher and contact our Hatch Art in Action Coordinator at [email protected].
