Special needs students visit Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art

GREAT FALLS –

Students from the Montana School for the Deaf & Blind visited the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art on Thursday.

They took a tour of the galleries and participated in a hands on art workshop. 

The Museum Access for Kids Program is provided under a contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Through the program more than 100 special needs students in North Central Montana will learn about art and get a chance to make their own masterpieces. 

The students will visit the Paris Gibson Museum a few times over the course of the coming months so they can learn about different mediums and artists that are on display.

Seven school districts will visit the museum as part of the program, including Montana School for the Deaf and Blind, Conrad Schools, Belt Schools, Sun River Valley Schools, Vaughn Public Schools, Highwood Schools, and Great Falls Public Schools.

“What I hope is that the students will be comfortable in a contemporary art environment, in a museum setting and learn that our building, the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art is here for the whole community and that includes them,” said PGS Education Director Jeff Kuratnick.

Kuratnick added that working with clay is always a favorite among the students.
