Welcome to Tualatin Elementary PTA!

Art Lit

​If you’re interested in volunteering for Art Lit at the class or committee level, sign up here!

​​Art Literacy is our school’s only structured art program – and the kids absolutely love it!

This “hands on” program teaches kids how to appreciate and enjoy art through exposure to a wide array of artists and art mediums including paint, pastels, clay, graphite and mixed media. Just like math or science, art literacy is a discipline in which skills are built upon each year. Art Lit enlarges our students’ ability to express themselves through their own artistic creations – and it’s a whole lot of fun, too!

Art Lit is a wonderful program that the Tigard-Tualatin School District has provided to all elementary schools for more than 20 years.

​No art or teaching experience is necessary to be an Art Lit volunteer!

Art lit is 100% volunteer led. Parent volunteers (just like you!) work as a team to share five prepared lessons and art projects from October-April. Our PTA generously provides funding for the lessons and project materials.
