Art Lesson Plan Form

Art-a-Baloo ART LESSON PLAN is extremely important to the Art-a-Baloo program:

  • It gives the PTO and school administrators an account of what the program is doing
  • That same accounting helps back and re-enforce budgets requests, helps support budget increase inquires too!
  • It facilitate in supply and inventory issues
  • It helps re-create the 'art experience' for other students, in other classes, for years to come.
  • and lastly, it gives our visitors an idea of what the children are learning with the program and why it is so beneficial.    

The Art Lesson Plan  is located in the PTO office.  Please turn it in by emailing it to, or leave it in the Art-a-Baloo Folder in the PTO office and notifying the Art Docent Leaders it's there.  Also please be sure to notify Art Docents Leaders if you have NOT taken pictures of the projects, and email pictures if you have.
