Grace Art

Welcome to Grace Art!

GRACE Art is a monthly art enrichment program that was developed by the Greater Reston Art Center (GRACE) and is supported by the PTA.  Each month, our children explore an artist or genre of art through a coordinated art project introduced to their class by teams of parent volunteers. GRACE Art volunteers teach art appreciation and complete art projects with students in the classroom. This is a monthly program, and takes approximately one hour of volunteer time in the classroom.
