Art Expression, Art Facilitators Cheryl Silinskas and Donna McBride along with, Faculty Facilitators Lisa Thoft, Georgann Bemis, and Kathy Perry partnered with the students to create works of art about themselves and the group. First, we talk about project inspiration and brainstorming techniques. Students enjoy getting to vote on projects to attempt individually, as well as together. Everyone helps with problem-solving, frustration tolerance while working. The group creates artist statements and prepares for exhibit. From start to finish, students learn about the path of an artist, and what art-making means to them.
