Artist in Residence Happenings as of November 21

WOW!  What a great couple of weeks in the AIR program!  You may remember Mel Kolstad, resident artist, talking about visiting with Mr. Soik’s Honors Humanities class for their first unit – well, he asked her back to consult with the students about their second unit, which deals with ancient Sumerian and Egyptian culture, The Epic of Gilgamesh and the samples of Egyptian literature.  What they created was incredible, as you can see!

Mel also met with Mrs. Reinemann’s Chemistry Club, which was SO much fun! The club made Solarfast prints and tie-dyed t-shirts!  The students had a great time making these, and the project will be implemented in a future chemistry class.  What a fun way to learn about photoreactive dyes!
