Welcome to the AIA page!  This 2019-2020 school year marks the 25th anniversary of Adventures in Art!
Please join us as parent volunteers to teach our middle schoolers five (5) amazing art projects in their school PE classes this year!  
Docents teach students: all docents must attend training classes in order to teach art projects.  Please complete the JMS volunteer form, the Docent volunteer agreement, and the AIA Volunteer Sign Up Form to give us your contact information.  
Don't want to teach?  No problem.  We need lots of parent volunteers to prepare art supplies before the trainings, and to assist in the classes while docents teach.  
Parent volunteers to assist docents: please complete the JMS volunteer form and the AIA Volunteer Sign Up Form with your contact information so we can give you important dates and times.  Thank you!
All forms can be turned into the JMS office or at school registration.

Adventures in Art Mission

Adventures in Art in TUSD and at JMS is a volunteer implemented fine arts program annually providing five elementary and five middle school projects to participating schools. Adventures in Art projects are specially selected to give students the opportunity and methodology to create their own unique art solutions while using fine art materials. Adventures in Art philosophy is grounded in the belief that a child's art experience should focus on the process rather than the finished product. Adventures in Art is dedicated to expanding the creative spirit in children in a nonjudgmental environment. The goal of the Adventures in Art program is to build a solid foundation of artistic exploration and fun that will interest, inspire and motivate children to confidently and skillfully create works of art beyond our program's annual projects.
