Meet The Masters

Art education pays tremendous benefits for young student

ELC literacy outreach volunteers proudly displaying the artwork the children created during the Meet the Masters Arts Program at Presbyterian Day School in St. Augustine.

Meet The Masters is our creative program to introduce art to preschool age children. It features live and multimedia presentations plus hands on experiences to teach young children about the lives and techniques of the world’s great artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and many more!

This program can be put on live by the ELCNF outreach team in local preschools or it can be done virtually by visiting: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGM1XMctdy_C24m2y3IjlbKXTFAGgOV8d.

Preschool providers in the ELCNF six county area who want to do the program virtually can access a FREE written program guide. You can find this resource here:  https://elcnorthflorida.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Binder-for-Meet-the-Masters-Independent-Program10310.pdf. A resource kit that includes the program on DVD or Flashdrive, activity supplies and written binder can also be obtained by contacting Joan Whitson at the ELC of North Florida.

Live programs include a performance of one of the featured artists followed by an art activity that relates to that artist and a music extensions time. Schools are then given the program kit to finish the last six lessons on their own. Contact Joan Whitson at jwhitson@elcnorthflorida.org to schedule a live program or to request a program guide and activities kit.
