What do students do when they have a day off from school because it is a Staff Development Day for teachers? Spend the afternoon at the Art Museum! On Monday, April 26, students between the ages of 6-11 are invited to paint and sculpt in the Shelton Studio, after exploring the colorful art work of artist Harold Garde. Garde was a student at the University of Wyoming in the late 1940’s and the current retrospective of his expressive paintings and prints provide exciting opportunities for creating new work. Healthy snacks will be provided.
