Prescott students are so lucky to have Tia and Amanda and the Artists in Residence Program! This exciting opportunity has given our students additional hands-on experiences in Art.
Amanda teaches Ceramics at Whitman College and Tia has an extensive background in art and performance. She also grew up in a very small rural farming community in Iowa similar to Prescott.
In the classroom, they are working on what hopefully will be a mural. They are also working with English class on some poetry. As Tia and Amanda connect with teachers, they will further define Art projects tied to the curriculum currently being taught.
Below you will see students working with Tia and Amanda on a Kintsugi Line. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with precious metals. The idea is that the resulting piece is MORE beautiful because of its scars.
