ArtSmart is a Marshall Road PTA-sponsored program that utilizes parent volunteers to introduce MRES students to various artists and their artwork as an enrichment and extension of everyday classroom learning. The program provides a creative opportunity, as students create works of their own inspired by an artist’s style. ArtSmart typically introduces students to four different artists and their works throughout each school year, with classroom presentations and art creation sessions held from October to June.
