A Narrative History of the Montana Heritage Project
Connecting Heritage and Art
Jeri MalatareSt. Ignatius High School
Students were exposed to community learning in just about every aspect of this art class. Specific studio activities such as making batik were tied to family heritage; field trips to local graveyards combined history and art in the form of grave stone rubbings; tours of local buildings after completing an architecture unit let students apply architectural appreciation to their own downtown; and students learned about the business of art by organizing an art show for seventeen area artists.To print a final report for the year-end binder, click here.
