Watercolor artist visits Morris Area Elementary
MORRIS – On Monday, Feb. 3, third grade students at Morris Area Elementary School worked with artist Jim Mondloch of St. Cloud to learn watercolor techniques and create their own paintings.
Mondloch spent a total of five days at MAES and worked with each of the four third grade classrooms for about an hour each day.
Over the lunch period, Mondloch also offered mini-lessons to students in second through fifth grade.
“It was pizza and art and a great opportunity to share Jim's talent across several grade levels,” said teacher Holly Carrington.
Funding for the week-long program was provided by the Morris Area Arts Boosters, a group dedicated to fostering arts education activities across disciplines for students in the Morris Area School District.
