ART

Westlake Elementary students receive art instruction through our new parent volunteer program in partnership with Mrs. Alison Friedman.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW VOLUNTEER-LED ART PROGRAM!

Parent volunteers will meet monthly with Mrs. Friedman for training. Then the volunteers will coordinate a time to teach the lesson to their child's class. 

Since 2009, Alison Friedman has been a CVUSD teacher at various schools and in several capacities. With a Bachelor’s degree from The University of Arizona and a multiple subject teaching credential from California Lutheran University, Mrs. Friedman is currently in her 4th year teaching art in her own studio space at Aspen Elementary.  She also supports the district in the arts, having worked on the Focus on the Arts program during the 2020-2021 school year. Mrs. Friedman’s passion for the arts stems from the philosophies that art is for everyone, art makes us well-rounded people, and art allows us to get along with others. Her passion for the arts began when she was younger, having also performed in theater and choirs.  Mrs. Friedman is also a product of the district and has two elementary school daughters who, of course, also love art.
