Off The Canvas is a volunteer driven program.  The goal is to have an Off The Canvas volunteer (or two) in each classroom.  This volunteer works under the direction of and in cooperation with the Off The Canvas chairperson and the classroom teacher. 
 
Once a month, the volunteer presents a various display of arts and crafts to the class through the use of library books, posters, laptop computers and/or the promethean board.  The volunteer will highlight the significant aspects of an artists' or craftsmens style and life as well as lead discussions with students about the art or craft.  In addition to the presentation, the volunteer will provide a hands on art or craft project that coincides with the presentation.
