The BISD first- and second-grade students recently visited the Beeville Art Museum and had a tour and a correlating art class of the exhibition titled “Poet of the Ordinary: Photographs by Keith Carter” with instructor, education director Crystal Farris.

During their art class, the students used pastels and learned basic techniques, such as linear strokes, side strokes, blending and overlaying color, as well as hearing the history of the artist.

An exhibition of figurative drawings created by the students during their visit will be on display at the museum Oct. 11-Nov. 4.

Admission to the Beeville Art Museum is free of charge and the public is invited to visit the museum to view the Children Artists of Beeville exhibition.

The Joe Barnhart Foundation in collaboration with the Beeville Independent School District, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Beeville Art Museum will continue their goal of increasing literacy through art in Beeville.

One portion of the Beeville ISD/Museum of Fine Arts Houston proposal allows grades K-12 to tour exhibits throughout the school year and grades 1-6 to receive both tours and art classes at the Beeville Art Museum.
