LWSD Art Docent Program

Art Docents are classroom volunteers who teach art lessons to elementary students. The new Lake Washington School District elementary art curriculum and the elementary art docent program complement each other.

Lake Washington Schools Foundation logo. The Lake Washington Schools Foundation funded the development of elementary art lessons in partnership with LWSD Art Docents. Art Docents can use these resources to provide equitable access to art district-wide.

The elementary art docent lessons below help LWSD extend and enrich the overall visual arts experience for students in all our elementary schools.

Second grade art docent lessons are currently available below. Lessons for the remaining grade levels are under development and will be posted as they are completed during the 2017-18 school year.
