Family Art Nights: AME 043

AME-043-Family-Art-Night-Image

Hosting a family art night can be the best way to build support for your art program, boost parent involvement and advocate for your program within your community. In this episode, I share my experiences with my own family art night both as a parent and as the organizer.

I walk you through what worked for me, how I set up the event, what projects were successful ( and which ones weren’t!) and ways to incorporate fundraising.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN: 

  • How to set your intentions for the event and why it’s important
  • What a family art night can offer families in regard to a community building and bonding experience
  • How a check-in table can get the parents involved (and informed)
  • The benefits of a hostess
  • How to choose the right art projects for your event
  • How to create an Art Board for self-guided art exploration
  • How to manage wet art projects

    • I don’t have a lesson plan for the fish project or pictures. I guess it was one of those projects that was all hands-on-deck!Sorry!
