The Art Docents of Los Gatos were very fortunate to have artist Zoey Frank joining us at our October general meeting.
Zoey Frank is an exciting and talented emerging artist, whose award-winning work has been displayed across the country and featured in many recent publications. Ms. Frank shared her paintings and drawings with us, and discussed her approach to expressive portraiture, both as an artist and as an art educator. It was such a treat for all of us and we want to express our sincere thanks to Zoey Frank. Check out the video that she showed during her presentation.
Interested in becoming at Art Docent?
The Art Docents of Los Gatos is actively seeking new recruits to help us teach art to the students of Los Gatos. No experience with teaching? No artistic talent? No problem – we will train you! All you need is a desire to work with kids and help them foster an appreciation for art. Once trained, we ask our volunteers to commit to teach in the classroom during the school year.
If you don’t have time to volunteer as an Art Docent, you can volunteer to help in your child’s classroom when there is an Art Docent lesson being taught. We also appreciate monetary donations to help fund our lessons.
All help is appreciated. All parents are invited to explore becoming an Art Docent.
