Art in Action started in Parkside in 2004. The program offers a discipline-based, sequential visual art curriculum that teaches art appreciation, art history, and art techniques and further assists educators with training and support, enabling them to integrate visual art into the learning experience of every student. To learn more about this greater Bay Area program, please go to the Art in Action website.
We had our 1st art show in May 2005 and annually after that to display our students' work. Parkside students' art work can also be seen at the Main and Marina libraries in San Mateo.
Art in Action holds hands-on training trainings for volunteers during SEPTEMBER only. Parents who wish to help teach prepared art lessons to their child's class this school year need to sign up for a training time before it's too late!
To register directly online, go to the Art in Action Training Site.
