Guest Artist 
Do you know of someone who would be an great Guest Artist for the elementary or middle schools?  Let us know!  


Seeking professional artists who are interested in speaking to our students (Kindergarten through 8th Grade across 5 schools) for a few days in the Spring of 2019. A daily stipend is offered for their time.

The Guest Artist should be comfortable speaking to and engaging children. The artist’s short presentation should explain their career path, their daily art process and possibly show a demo or examples of their work. This is not a workshop.  Please forward any recommendations to Stefanie.

Jr. Art Docents at the Los Gatos High School club sign up day!

The LGHS JR Art Docent Club set up a very successful booth at CLUB DAY on the beautiful LGHS front lawn. Dozens of high school students came forward on this sunny day to become Junior Art Docents: The new members of the club are eager to participate with the Art Docents in the Los Gatos Holiday Parade and the end-of-the-year Student Art Show. The energetic members also hope to obtain a gallery showing of high school student art in Los Gatos. They are available to assist whenever needed in Art Docent functions. In return for their commitment to the program, the students earn community service hours and leadership opportunities while promoting Art in the Los Gatos schools. We are proud of their continued dedication to the arts in our district!


Jr. Art Docents Club 2018-2019
​Statement
by, Brianna Z., President & Beatrice M., Vice President

Because we believe that art is an important and often neglected aspect of our culture that should be shared, we started the Jr. Art Docents Club of Los Gatos High to spread this message.  We hope to instill within students an appreciation for the arts, and we are very excited to work in collaboration with the Art Docents program to do this.  We look forward to giving back to the community through art!

The goal of our club is to assist the Art Docents of Los Gatos in their mission to introduce a high quality visual art curriculum to the elementary students.  In order  to accomplish this, we plan to organize and Participate in volunteering opportunities with the Art Docents.  Some volunteer opportunities we hope to set up include, but are not limited to:  walking in the Los Gatos Holiday Parade, sorting through art prints, and helping out at the Annual Student art show held at Fisher.
