NAUSET PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Recent collaborations with Nauset Public Schools include professional development sessions with art teachers; the creation of an exhibition with Nauset High School art teacher Ginny Ogden and her students; a printmaking project with Wellfleet Elementary and Meghan Swanson’s 5th grade art class; and a plein air project with Eastham Elementary and Molly Driscoll’s 3, 4, and 5 grades.
Of her experience working with PAAM Molly Driscoll says, “For years now I have envisioned my students painting outside, “en plein air,” with their own easels once the weather warmed. With Lynn Stanley’s help, along with funding from PAAM, we were able to achieve that goal this spring. Lynn was instrumental in connecting me with local artist Rob Dutoit, who came in to demonstrate his craft. PAAM provided the funding to compensate Rob for his time. My students also benefited from being able to see original works from PAAM’s collection and a thoughtfully prepared Power Point on plein air painting, as preparation for their own work drawing and painting outside. It was lots of fun and a perfect way to approach the end of the school year in the art room. We are so lucky to live in a place with such a rich history in the arts. Connecting with institutions that support art education for our children is essential for keeping this history alive.”
