Art History Project

This innovative docent program provides Art History presentations that are correlated to the Middle School Social Studies curriculum and are a part of the K-12 Art History continuum. There are two sixth grade presentations: Pre-History/Early Civilizations and the Ancient Art of India. Seventh grade covers Islamic Art and Pre-Columbian American Art and there is an American Art presentation, for students in the eighth grade.

At the elementary level, PAUSD Art Education’s coordinator, Sharon Ferguson, trains and coordinates docents in the Meet the Masters program, offering 10 presentations based on the lives and work of master artists, with 2-part visits to elementary classrooms. The middle school Art History Project progresses to a broader cultural perspective and in High School students may choose the rigorous course of study, Advanced Placement Art History.
