The Virgin Valley Artists Association has teamed up with the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum to offer opportunities for students to reflect on how artists are influenced by history, the landscape, and their personal experiences.
Written lesson plans for all classes will also be accessible to parents on-line. The “at home” lessons give students opportunities to practice their skills in reading, following directions, problem solving and creative thinking. In addition, the “at home” lessons encourage students to learn about the history of the Virgin Valley and famous artists who have overcome diversity. As those lesson plans become available, a link to them will be posted here.
A schedule of the classes is listed below. Students/Parents can pick up registration forms in the gallery or click on the link here.
