AGTS is a weeklong Cultural Arts program delivered to all RES students through their Art Specials class in March. It is open to all grades and all classes offering a fun-filled hour of art history and exploration.

 

Each year, students get the opportunity to see a portfolio of over 20 reproductions of art, featuring the work of local and international artists, including paintings, tapestry, sculpture, mural art, photography, screen printing and more. The AGTS mobile museum showcases examples of work from the very ancient to the most contemporary, enabling students to see how types, themes, and materials in the art have evolved. Students are encouraged to ‘look, listen and feel’ art through interactive presentations, games, story-time and more.

But the AGTS adventure does not need to end in the classroom.

Some of the ‘real’ artworks are currently on display in museums in Philadelphia, in New York and Washington. Talk to your child about what they have seen and enjoyed. If you would like to find out more about any of this year’s AGTS artworks, please contact Anne Samuel

Program overview 
The RES PTO works in partnership with the Radnor Chapter of Art Goes to School.  Art Goes to School of Delaware Valley (AGTS-DV) is a non-profit volunteer organization which brings art appreciation classes to school children in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey.

AGTS offers a unique classroom volunteer opportunity
We are looking for RES parents that enjoy exploring art and volunteering in the classroom. You don’t need to be a teacher or an artist – we are merely looking for enthusiastic and committed parents to enable this program to grow and develop.

AGTS is a fun and welcoming group that offers an excellent opportunity to make new friends in the Radnor community and take time out to enjoy art.
