I just came from a school in our district who hired an Artist in
Residence for the past 5 weeks. I had a meeting there and she was just
finishing her work. It was 2 paintings about 3'x4'. They were
beautiful landscapes, very pastural and peaceful. The most fun was the
kids work that was hung all up and down the wall near her work. The
classes had come and watched her paint and asked her questions then
wrote to her or drew her picture. The kids work was as much fun as the
artists. What a neat project! And an inspiration to all the elementary
kids there.
A wonderful way for the site-based school to spend their money.
