Master Portfolio Rotation Schedule 2015-2016 - All Schools

Schedule an Art Class

View the LTUSD website for calendar and news of school events, activities, closures, etc.: Click:

Check your school's calendar for openings for your grade level.

Contact your teacher to select a mutually convenient day and time for your presentation. Do not schedule your visit in the last two days prior to the portfolio rotation because the portfolios must be available to move to the next school. Allow 1-½ to 2 hours for the lesson. Provide the teacher with your contact information in case the art lesson must be rescheduled for any reason. Confirm your visit a few days before you arrive.

Mark the school's calendar as soon as the teacher confirms:

  • Please write morning class appointments at the top half of the
    date box, afternoon appointments in the lower half.
  • Include the following information: Teacher's name, time, grade level, portfolio letter, medium, volunteers name and phone number.
    Example: Mrs. Jones 1-3 pm 3rd grade - Port. C
    oil pastel/black paper  Kathy Smith 577-8666
  • Note: It is okay to schedule presentations for minimum days, but teachers don't usually have time on shorter days.

Remind your teacher the day before scheduled class.

The teacher MUST remain in the classroom during your presentation for legal reasons.

The art lesson format:

  1. Group discussion: Start with a 15- to 30-minute group discussion (like story time) studying five significant art prints of a specific theme of famous Masters' art.  By using the 18” x 24” full color reproduction art prints and through careful observation, questioning strategies, comparisons, and related art productions activities, students participate in learning that leads to a higher level of understanding and appreciation of art.
  2. Demonstration: Provide a 10- to 15-minute demonstration of the art project that relates to the prints.
  3. Hands-on Art Project: Allow enough time for the students to fully develop and complete the project.
