Art Goes to School (AGTS) is a nonprofit organization that for the past 50 years has worked to present a wide-ranging, rotating portfolio of art to the Delaware Valley’s elementary students.
The Owen J Roberts Art Goes to School chapter is one of over 50 school districts that participate in the program. Owen J Roberts School District has participated for more than 30 years bringing the richness of visual arts appreciation to all of our elementary schools.
Art Goes to School is staffed exclusively by volunteers. AGTS volunteers start each new school year by researching pieces from rotating portfolios and presenting findings to fellow members. Then, we bring some of that knowledge back to the District's elementary classrooms in the form of Art Appreciation seminars. The greater AGTS membership gathers several times a year to share ideas and information sometimes visiting various art venues (occasionally with free, exclusive access).
The 2016 Owen J Roberts School District Portfolio includes the following works:
Pablo Picasso Family of altimbanques
