• LEAP (Lawrence Elementary Art Program) is our volunteer-run art program providing visual arts experiences to all Lawrence Elementary Students, grades TK-5. Funded by the Lawrence Elementary PTO, the program supports curiosity, creativity, and artistic skill development by offering monthly lessons to every classroom. These lessons have been created to teach art from a global perspective, focusing on one art concept learned through hands-on art activities derived from a specific region or country.

    Want to volunteer for LEAP? No artistic skills are needed, just a willingness to facilitate students' art experiences. Contact our LEAP Coordinator, Karlene Hill at lawrenceptoart@gmail.com for more information or to sign up! 

    Keep your eye on this page for more information about how to start your own volunteer-run art program at your local elementary school!
