Juvenile detention Guy Anderson print project
In an effort to reach all children and provide access to art, the MoNA education department offers an outreach program to those in juvenile detention. Focused on student-centered discussion, with some added instruction, museum staff can provide a lesson plan in which students can examine examples of work and look for recurring themes. Hands on art projects are also provided and students guided through the process of making their own creations. Past lessons have explored the life work of Guy Anderson and his seed-like imagery, including discussion on what the seed could symbolize. Students created drawings of personal symbols and created designs that had individual meaning. These were turned into relief prints, and each artist had at least one print to keep. The process and principles of basic printmaking were presented to the group. Should you wish to discuss a site visit from the MoNA staff please contact: Education Director, Jasmine Valandani at jasminev@museumofnwart.org or call (360)466-4446 x101.
