What's Right in the School District of Janesville

Pageant of the Master – Collaboration between Craig and Lincoln Students

Craig Art teacher, Lori Barry, Lincoln's Innovative Learning Specialist, Shelley Gard, and Lincoln Art teacher, Todd Miller, partnered to complete an interactive art mural that will be housed in the Lincoln LMC for future students to enjoy. Mrs. Gard approached Mrs. Barry about involving her advanced painting students in an effort to create a more inviting atmosphere in the somewhat dated Lincoln LMC. Mrs. Barry had recently visited the Laguna Beach Pageant of the Master's and thought it would be fun to create an interactive piece where students use props and costumes to 'become' a part of the painting. 

Mrs. Barry's students had seen painting that they replicated while on a field trip to the Milwaukee Art Museum. Todd Miller involved his fourth graders in creating the props that will help set the stage for the mural in its home in the Lincoln LMC. Please feel free to swing by the Lincoln LMC and interact with the art!

Our friends at Local Vision has created a great short video explaining the project!  Thank you!
