Art students visited the Pecatonica School House Museum during art classes to explore and find inspiration the week of May 13-17. Students were able to imagine how a pupil might have spent the day at school almost a hundred years ago and what supplies they might use. When they finished the tour they sat outside on the sidewalk and began sketching a picture of the building with colored chalk. Some students took a brief moment in the middle of their sketches to pose for a few “digital” photographs inside the building where time period desks, maps, furnishings, and a sign above the chalkboard that reads “What we are to be we are now becoming” are exhibited. It’s wonderful that we have this piece of history right here in district. Thank you Mrs. Garcia, Art Teacher, and Woman’s Club for having made this creative field trip possible.
