Docent Arts Education Program

The Rye Arts Center announces a change in name for its long-standing, popular program “Famous Artists.” Going forward, the program will be known as “LOOK!,” which will continue to focus on individuals and groups of artists as well as on a variety of mediums and aesthetics. The presentations will be enhanced by an examination of how artists employ and interpret the techniques and principles of art production, especially in today’s world. Emerging artists – as well as “famous” ones will be considered, as will different mediums and forms of design, including textile arts, printmaking, and digital arts.

This fall, The Rye Arts Center’s LOOK! Program will explore public art, concentrating on local monuments and venues, using examples of sculpture and murals on public view. From the WPA Murals at the Port Chester Post Office to the Sculpture Gardens at Pepsico, there will be numerous accessible sites for your students, teachers, and families to visit. We will look at works on view throughout Westchester and Fairfield Counties as well as in New York City and upstate New York. We will provide suggested walking tours of some of the venues. and will call attention to local works at The Rye Arts Center and Rye Town Park.

As with the Famous Artists Program, “LOOK!” will continue to focus on training parents to be classroom docents and the cost will remain the same: $250 per semester (per school.) For the first time, the program will also be open to educators with a one-time introductory offer of $75 per semester (schools do not need to participate).

Fall 2017: Wednesday, October 4 & Thursday, October 5, 10:00 – 11:30 am
