J Watson Bailey Middle School Students

Students from Bailey created collaborative abstract drawings exploring color, line and shape inspired by the WAAM’s Permanent Collection and contemporary artist members. They then generated lists of descriptive words to be used in classroom writing projects. This project was designed with the ENL teachers to support a diverse group of students including English language learners.

Art for Education at WAAM

Education Curator Beth Humphrey works with over 500 students annually across 9 area schools, collaborating with teachers to create innovative and relevant arts-in-education programming. WAAM provides free in-school residencies, annual field trips and fun, hands-on activities. The artwork that students make during these WAAM programs can viewed throughout the year in the Youth Exhibition Space ( YES) Gallery.
