Teacher Training Workshop

On April 9, 2008, Mountain View Elementary school teachers and principal spend a staff training afternoon learning two different techniques for incorporating the arts into the classroom. Teaching artists, Jesse Joshua Watson, and Margie Mcdonald lead the arts lessons. Jesse taught Bas Relief with watercolor paper and matte board, Margie taught recycled sculpture with copper wire and organic materials.
