The Masterpiece Art program is run solely by volunteers. No art knowledge or experience is needed or required to teach the classes. All projects are pre-planned and all art materials and lesson plans are provided for each 45 minute lesson. Most of the class time is spent on the children working on their art piece.

*Provide listening activities that allow students to hear music examples of each family.
*Provide listening activities that allow students to identify what instruments they hear.
*Introduce students to a myriad of composers.
