Northwest Art is celebrating its 40th anniversary. The program was the brainchild of Sustaining member, Dee Dickinson. The committee introduces elementary school children, the community and JLS members to the rich production of Northwest artists in this highly respected art collection. Through informal and intimate discussion of the pieces, the children experience more than a formal art history lesson.
They are encouraged to express themselves by making their own art, and exploring their own imagination and responses when viewing art. Committee members serve as docents in the Seattle Public Schools, and train PTA members to act as docents at the Bellevue Art Museum. The collection is provided to participating schools.
