You can find Gallatin Gateway school on your way to Yellowstone Park. It’s just an hour and a half from the entrance. Part of the Gallatin Gateway school is the original brick building and the other half is the remodeled version. It has a warm character and the helpful staff reflect that!
A highlight from the visit was our found poem art project with the 4-5 grade students. The 4-5 grade teacher told me that she loves art and tries to include it as much as possible, but sometimes her lessons seem to crafty. “I really like this lesson, it’s perfect for this age level and I’m definitely going to use it again.” I told her that she could find more of our art lessons on our website. Another highlight from the day was the presentation with the 6-8 grade art class. There were quite a few students highly involved in art and were excited to talk to me one on one about their favorite artworks. Many students wanted to know more about Courtney Blazon’s “Island of Little Depraved Felons.” One student said, “The more you look at it, the creepier it is.” Students were glued to the piece as we worked together to interpret the illustration. The art teacher told us, “I collect Courtney Blazon’s art, I have so many prints!” At the end of the day, I packed the art and stopped by the office. The secretary asked if I was ready for help and then made an announcement, “Attention teachers, the Art Mobile teacher is ready for help, please meet her at the art room.” In just a few minutes, I had a crew of teachers ready to help me pack the van.
