Check out this map to see all the places the Art Mobile of Montana has traveled to so far this year. We still have plenty more to go! If your school or group is interested in scheduling a visit, please send us an email. We would love to add you to our tour.
Last week the Art Mobile of Montana visited McCormick Elementary and W.F. Morrison Elementary in Troy, along with Lincoln County High School. McCormick school had a room full of boys in their 4-6 grade class. We had 4 presentations and 1 art lesson at W.F. Morrison. The entire school was able to check out the exhibit and the 5th grade class created collages based on Jennifer Ogden's "Becoming the Fox". I finished the week with a quick hop and skip over to Eureka. One H.S. student at Eureka said, “This exhibit was really cool. I feel like this could be me someday with my own art. It gave me confidence to keep drawing.”

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.
