Art Literacy @ McKay


The Beaverton School District is home to an exceptional, volunteer-staffed elementary and middle school art education program called Art Literacy. About 1,600 volunteers currently participate in Art Literacy in 48 Beaverton elementary and middle schools.

Art Literacy lessons are presented six times a year at the elementary level, from October to June, during regular school hours. 

If you are a Community Volunteer, you are assigned a classroom at a school where there is a need. You may present the lessons/art projects to the students, or choose to act as an assistant to the presenter.

This is an opportunity for those who enjoy working with students in a teacher-like role. The classroom teacher remains with the class, but you are presenting or assisting with the lesson.
