As a volunteer for my son’s school, Peace with Christ Christian School, in Aurora, Colorado, I recommended the Meet the Masters program to the art teacher and to the principal. One track was purchased the next year and another track was purchased the subsequent year. Volunteers moved between classrooms presenting artists to children who were excited and enthusiastic about learning the Masters of art.  The curriculum presented the artist biography, broke down art techniques into manageable pieces, and enhanced the students artistic skills.

Wishing you many years of continued success in bringing art and Meet the Masters to children, of all ages.

My 10-year-old daughter surprised me when she recognized a Picasso. “This was his blue period”, she said. “How did you know that”, I asked. Her reply was, “I learned about Picasso at Meet The Masters”.

I’m thrilled our school supports this program!

The children, parents and I are thrilled with the program. As it is with every art teacher, I have made modifications and at times branch out with it. But overall, such a blessing!

Thank you again and Keep up the great work MTM!

You have a super program here!

The Meet the Masters program has been a real blessing for not only my classroom, but also to me as an individual. I love learning about the lives of these artists, and then seeing the students apply the artists’ techniques themselves. Even if you already have a stock of “projects” that you rely on, Meet the Masters is a wonderful addition to your program. I recommend this to every teacher I know!

I love MTM because it provides our kids with otherwise unavailable or limited art exposure. It gives them a chance to create and be inspired by amazing artists from different times in history, as well as within different mediums. Being a coordinator for MTM allows me the privilege of providing inspiration and creativity to kids just starting out on their educational journey- they never cease to amaze me with what they are able to express!

Meet the Masters continues to entertain, educate and keep my kids interested in the art masters. We have been working with MTM and their teachers for many years now and I always recommend it to other teachers who want to get the most out of their art program.

Absolutely 5 stars!

I first discovered MTM eight years ago at Legacy Prep Academy in Utah. I signed up to volunteer and I was blown away! It was simple, informative, and so much fun. The structure of the scripted lesson plans made it so easy to present to students. Art history, technique, creative inspiration, cultural literacy! All these things presented in a way that is fun and easy to retain. It is a joy for the students and the adults lucky enough to be teaching them!

I appreciate the program package that you offer. It has been helpful for us in our school to provide such a broad exposure to artists and genres. I’ve experienced many different methods of art instruction in various schools I’ve served. I’ve just completed my first year at my school as principal and this has been very valuable program for us.

Meet the Masters Art Program and their teachers have been a wonderful addition to Las Palmas Elementary School. Our students love the engaging discussions about art and famous artists and greatly enjoy the actual art projects. The students are a part of raising the funds each year to keep the program going and they love hearing they have reached the amount and art is returning. Meet the Masters is an easy to implement program at any school, highly organized, and worth the money.

I have been so impressed with Meet the Masters and truly believe it has been an invaluable learning experience for my son. He loved being exposed in creative and unique ways to history and cultures different than our own.

Volunteering was simple with all the instructions and training videos. What an amazing program!

While I was in elementary school, Meet the Masters visited many times and I was in awe by the whole experience. To this day I still think about the lessons I learned and still have my rendition of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I would love to inspire young students the same way Meet the Masters instructors have inspired me and so many of us.

Meet the masters continues to be one of the most successful programs at our school, with the largest consistent group of parent volunteers. Our students recognize art by “the masters” when they see it around town or on family trips. Students that call themselves “bad at art” have been delighted when they see the beautiful art they can create. Thank you for all you do to make this curriculum glow and shine. We love it and are so thrilled to continue to use it at our school!

Working as a volunteer with the Meet the Masters program at my son’s school this past year has been such a great experience. I believe art programs help children build confidence and instill a sense of wonder and curiosity that helps foster creativity. Meet the Masters is so wonderful because it gives young children a taste of art fundamentals while teaching them about the many styles and techniques of artists from around the world and from different time periods. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing each child in my son’s first grade class create their own unique masterpiece!

Teachers were able to implement the clearly written Meet the Masters lesson plan with ease. Our second graders were actively engaged during the Picasso lesson. They created their own abstract art and were proud to share their masterpieces with their families during Open House last year. Overall, we were impressed with the material and the students enjoyed learning about Picasso. We will be doing the art project again this year to share at Open House.

The Meet the Masters art camp in Uganda was a great success! MTM was a highlight for the children, and it made it very simple and straightforward to teach. Thanks isn’t enough…the children and adults loved learning about the color wheel, art history, seeing famous pieces of art – plus, making their own masterpieces. I saw many children moved in new ways because of the art they experienced through the curriculum.

I am the director of Meet the Masters at REACH Leadership STEAM Academy in Riverside California. The children love the art projects and look forward to learning about artists every month. At the end of every school year we do an art gallery where we display the student’s artwork. The parents, students, and school staff all enjoy Meet the Masters!
