Art Goes to School
Owen J Roberts Chapter
Art Goes to School (AGTS) is a nonprofit organization that for the past 50+ years has worked to present a wide-ranging, rotating portfolio of art to the Delaware Valley’s elementary students. 
The Owen J Roberts Art Goes to School chapter is one of over 50 school districts that participates in the program (and is itself over 30 years strong!)
Art Goes To School Volunteers Matter
What's involved?
Art Goes To School volunteers meet weekly from Sept – Dec to learn about our portfolio while enjoying camaraderie and delicious treats.  From Jan- April, we present our pieces to K-5 students in the district on a rotating schedule.  Volunteers are continually learning and sharing. 
Are you an enthusiastic life-long learner?  Maybe Art Goes to School would be a good fit for you, too!
Please check out the AGTS of Delaware Valley’s website for excerpts from several of our portfolios and for a peek at all the fun and enriching activities we do as a larger or contact one of our OJR representatives (information below) to learn more.
The Artists
We offer the District's K-5 children a small, but wide-ranging sample of what the art world has to offer, including
but not limited to:

Ancient Egyptian sculpture 
Japanese Woodblock Prints
Old Dutch Masters
Abstract Expressionists
Modern Artists
Murals from the Philadelphia Area
In examining our portfolio selections, children are encouraged to look at and experience the art pieces in new and engaging ways. 
The Portfolio
The Classroom
Through its affiliation with Art Goes to School of Delaware Valley, our chapter receives a portfolio of approximately 20 art print reproductions (from its repository of over 900) each year.

Within our portfolios are examples of a variety of different styles, genres and media from artists through time and across cultures.
We present our portfolios within the context of the District's regular Art classrooms.  Presenters work creatively to relate to the children at their level, whether a Kindergartener just starting out; or a 5th grader who has already begun to establish a good foundation of art principles. 
Our goal is to enhance the great work our District's Art Teachers do each year.
