About the Program 

The Art in Action Program is a discipline-based, Common Core aligned, visual arts curriculum where students learn creativity, problem solving and critical thinking skills, and cultural awareness. Our

sequential program levels, based on historically significant works of art, teach art appreciation, art history, and art techniques through easy-to-present yet highly enriching content.

What Does an Art Docent Do?
  • Teach Art in Action lessons in the classroom
  • Schedule
  • Prepare for the lesson before class using the Online Lessons.
  • Lead the discussion of the masterpiece and show students how to do the project.
  • Most classrooms have a lesson every two weeks or once a month.
  • Lessons last about 60-90 minutes, depending on classroom schedules. The time can vary depending on the ages of the students and the media used. Some choose to cut the lesson into 2 time periods – the first for the discussion and the last for the project.
  • Coordinate lesson schedules with the classroom teacher. Share curriculum integration ideas.Teachers may reorder lessons to match their curriculum plans.
