The Tang museum visited the 8th grade Art classes to share their hands on project ideas. The unique projects provide opportunities for students to learn and understand the issues raised by current and past exhibitions at the Tang. Referencing artworks and themes from these exhibitions, the Tang has assembled interdisciplinary programs that bridge the arts and school curricula.
Students received recognition for their interpretation of the 33rd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. & Corretta Scott King Art Invitational. This year's theme " We will be known forever by the tracks we leave". Middle School Art students, Julianna Wiltsie and Mariah Breault were both given certificates for participation in the event.
Ms. Anne Clothier of Brookside Museum presented the first quarter Art 6 classes and parents with a historic look at the Village of Ballston Spa on September 30th. The information will assist 6th grade students in painting their chosen landmark this month for "Artists Are Inspired By Their Community".
