Photos from Previous Presentations 

Please share any pictures or videos you took during your presentation.  They can be uploaded to the above link.  Pictures can also be sent to parents through the SeeSaw app. Please contact the classroom teacher for more info.  THANKS!

  • The presentation should not take more than 5-8 minutes.  Feel free to talk more about the artist while the kids are doing the art project.  Allow yourself about 30 minutes for the art project, depending on the amount of parent helpers you have.
  • It’s a VERY good idea to have at least one parent helper to pass around supplies, assist, take photos, clean up, etc.
  • For whatever art project you do, please be sure to check on availability of supplies from PIA cabinet or art room well ahead of time so they can be ordered at a discounted price.  If you end up buying your own supplies, please be sure to submit an expense voucher to be reimbursed so we can keep track of actual expenses.
