Madison students participate in the South Bay Hands On Art program, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Madison PTA, your PTA donations, and our parent volunteers.

The aims of South Bay Hands On Art are:

  • To encourage the child's creative and mental growth through meaningful Art experiences in a non-judgmental environment.

  • To develop the child's visual perception and awareness.

  • To make the community resources in the arts more available to children

Students carry out six art projects throughout the school year. All projects are linked by a common theme. Sessions are led by "docents", who are all parent volunteers. (See below for more information about docent responsibilities.)
