Paint Pony Express continues this upcoming week at the UW Art Museum. Montana artist Tracy Linder will be at the museum for an artist's residency throughout the week. She will be in the Shelton Studio working with students and teachers on art making projects, including paper making. Tracy explores themes of ranch life, ritual, the environment and the interconnectedness of plants, animals and people in her work.
Paint Pony Express is an afternoon of free art related activities at the Museum. Art, movement, music, and storytelling are explored during the activities. Students get to explore different artwork at the Museum, including paintings, prints and sculpture, and then get the chance to create their own art. Each day is set aside for a different age group, listed below.
