We are looking for a very special volunteer to present art lessons to primary and middle school students with special needs.
Materials and lessons provided, you bring the pizazz! Volunteer must be high energy and animated while presenting lessons to capture the attention of children and to build excitement for the activity. Volunteer must also have the ability to switch gears when appropriate to show calm and patience while encouraging students in their efforts. Looking for a volunteer who is a natural at building people up!
Organizational skills and clear-thinking are essential. Volunteer will need to bring class through a series of steps to create their artwork and disseminate supplies at key points while also tracking their usage. Volunteer will also be in charge of maintaining supplies.
Position may require occasional prep at home.
Volunteer will be needed for 12 Tuesdays beginning mid-Sept and ending mid-December 9:30am-12:15pm. (12:15pm-3pm also available.) Availability for twelve Tuesdays is a must.
This is a great opportunity for anyone with an art therapy background or a college student going into special ed or OT, SLP or PT (not a requirement.)
No need to be a professional artist but you should consider yourself crafty and creative.
