Art Adventures Program

Browning is in need of presenters for our 2010-2011 Art Adventures Program! 

Who would be a great Art Adventures presenter?

  • A volunteer, who enjoys, admires or has a passion for art.
  • A volunteer who does not need to be artist…just creative!
  • A volunteer who presents art and/or artist information to students in their classrooms. He or she is not teaching or painting in the classrooms.
  • A volunteer who receives aid and support from Browning’s chairperson for Art Adventures Program.
  • A presenter can be anyone (stay-at-home moms/dads, working moms/dads, retirees, grandparents, godparents, older siblings, etc.…..)
    An Art Adventure presenter is a volunteer who wants to help out the students, make a difference at Browning, and most of all have fun!

For more information, please fill out a volunteer form or contact Browning’s Art Adventures Chairperson, Vaishali Mahimkar ([email protected]).

Thanks to everyone who attended the 2010/2011 PTA kick-off meeting!  Students enjoyed FREE childcare & fitness activities in the gym while parents learned more about our plans for year & volunteer opportunities. 

Browning parents, students, & staff are encouraged to embrace our “Healthy Habits/Healthy Minds” theme to further strengthen the ties between school & community. By promoting good eating habits & encouraging physical activity, we can help emphasize the important roles we all play in keeping our children healthy and ready to learn.

Please check out our calendar for listing of our upcoming events & initiatives!  It’s going to be a great year!

Hope to see you at our next meeting on Nov. 30th!
