Missoula Art Walk

We had a wonderful time at the Missoula Art Museum and the Missoula Public Library! We learned about the history of the art museum, including its transition from Missoula’s first public library to the wonderful showcase for artists it is today. For our tour, the museum highlighted the works of M.A. Papanek-Miller (A Snowman Cares for its Memory of Water), Sister Corita (Sign Language), and Marie Watt (Heirloom). We learned a whole lot of information from both the docents at the museum and the guide at the library; what was your favorite part of the day?

This month, we were fortunate to have Ms. Cross come visit our room for a special art project. She provided each student with their own art canvas, and led a project having the students paint their favorite animal image. Beginning with the negative space, then filling in the positive…students were able to experiment with shape and form. The canvases brought their creativity to a whole new level…it was really a fun process to watch! Great work you guys and thank you Ms. Cross! Many of the students have artwork showcased in the art show at the mall this month too, so stop by and take a look!
