It only takes about 3-4 hours a month. You don’t have to be an artist and you don’t need any previous teaching experience. You just need to enjoy working with grade school children, who happen to love doing art. We’ll give you all the training and art materials you’ll need* to teach eight hands-on lessons (one per month, October thru May). The kids will give you their enthusiasm and their appreciation.
The Kaleidoscope Art Program is an all-volunteer effort made possible by the Community Assistance League and the Pend Oreille Arts Council. We bring the joy and enrichment of art to 3rd, 4th, 5th and some 6th graders throughout Bonner County. Kids who may not have art on a regular basis otherwise.
This really is a rare opportunity to make a difference and to see that difference face to face. (And to have some fun in the process.) If you’d like to find out more, contact our Kaleidoscope Coordinator, by email to [email protected] or call the POAC Office at 208-263-6139. You’ll see being popular has never been so rewarding.
