Praise for Evelyn Voget (Hunterdon County):

Evelyn Voget volunteered at Lester D. Wilson School last week and I just wanted to share my appreciation and successes with you about the AGTS program.

AGTS is so fun for the students, and I look forward to it every year as well!  Each year the students get to experience artworks that I wouldn’t normally show them (I show a lot of contemporary work).  I love how Evelyn first asks them about the artwork before sharing facts, history and fun tidbits.  She is a really great speaker.  She engages the students by providing activities that go beyond seeing and listening – Evelyn encourages them to seek, find, inquire, acknowledge and celebrate!

Thank you for the opportunity to have knowledgeable volunteer guests that bring art into the lives of school children!

Sincerely,
Rachel Case
Art Teacher
