Artist in the Making (AIM)

With the retirement of the GRACEArt Program by the Greater Reston Arts Center, we welcome Wolftrap's own art program: Artist In the Making, or AIM.


The Wolftrap's Artist In the Making program strives to turn each student into a life-long art lover. By teaching art through both the masters and established modern artists, we teach art that AIMs to teach the foundations of art and artist techniques. 


NEW 2020-2021 Virtual AIM: AIM this year will be an optional activity for students and families to perform when most convenient to them.

1. AIM will run over a two week period ending in an optional Virtual Gallery Walk supported by PTA volunteers.

2. Materials are provided by parents. We encourage students to change or augment materials if the suggested materials are not available. 

3. Share with your fellow students and post your projects to the PTA Facebook page or to the provided FlipGrid. 

4. Have fun!
