Mapleton Elementary third grade students learned to use water color paints with Terrece Beesley, a water color artist who is on the Arts in Education panel for the Utah Division of Arts and Museums. She was in residence from Oct 3 to 17 Monday Wednesdays and Fridays. Parents came learn a water color technique from their child on Tuesday October 17.
Students learned about the element of color and the properties of
water color. The students liked trying their hand at pointillism and using color to express emotion. They also were able to become art critiques by learning some art history and rating master paintings with a new understanding of the artist's life experiences. The students thought that Terrece was amazing, super, awesome and really nice. This opportunity is made possible by a grant from the Utah Division of Art and Museums, the National Endowment for the Arts and matching funds from Mapleton Elementary.
