The Art Docent program is a longtime PCY tradition. While we leave the development of art skill sets to our art teacher, the art docents instill a love of art and art history in our children. The art docents provide opportunities for our children to relate to objects and ideas through discussion and activity. In addition, they are exposed to a wide variety of artists in a fun and creative setting. By studying the masters, our children learn a love of art, design and architecture that will last a lifetime!
