Trout Creek, Mt
When I asked the students, “What are some reasons for making art?” One student responded, “It gives me alone time and it calms me down.” Another student responded, “You can show your emotions with art.” Many students had questions about Ted Waddell’s Black Angus. One third grade student was particularly drawn to it. I asked her, “Why do you like this one?” The third grade student responded, “It’s meant to show how you feel. When I look at it, I don’t see anything, but I do feel something.” The theme of this presentation became centered on expression through art. The elementary students were open minded and keen on learning about how we can express ourselves and ideas.
