Professional Art Instruction Returns to Lakeridge!

Lakeridge has a professional art teacher in K-5 classrooms, with the support of our wonderful Art Docents! The Fine Arts Advisory Committee, a group of parent volunteers whose mission is to support all the fine arts in our schools, has donated $80K to pay for a full time teacher to be hired by the school district to teach elementary art, shared by the three elementary schools.  The teacher will work with grades 3-5 classrooms.

The Lakeridge PTA will contract Smart with Art, which has accredited art teachers on staff, to work with our K-2 classrooms.

Reflections PTA Art Reflections Contest

Reflections Art Contest is a Washington State PTA cultural arts competition to provide students an opportunity to use creative talents and express themselves through original works in visual arts, photography, literature, musical composition, film production, and dance choreography.  There is a different art theme each year. Register today!

Volunteer Now! Committee members will help promote participation of this contest in the fall, and finding ways to recognize Lakeridge winners in the spring. Any help in any capacity is very appreciated!


Our school is a member of Artsonia, an online student art museum. Sponsored by our PTA and supported by parent volunteers, Artsonia manages the Lakeridge online school art galleries in a safe and educational manner; developing students’ pride and self esteem and involving parents and relatives in their childrens’ art education. Artsonia can reproduce the art on a variety of gift items to be purchased as a fundraiser with 20% of sales returned to the Lakeridge PTA.

How to access Artsonia. Existing Artsonia parents should use same the email and password as last year. If you have forgotten, you can ask Artsonia to reset your password. New parents are set up after curriculum night. They then receive an email asking them to opt-in and set a password.
