Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy Upper Elementary students take a break from singing Christmas carols on Friday, Dec. 16 to pose in front of their paintings hanging in the Hall of Warriors.
The main purpose of the project was to celebrate the continued existence of native peoples while also showcasing the work of contemporary Native American artists, John Nieto (Apache) and Betty Albert (Cree).
Each student received a blank panel to recreate a section of a painting. Through the process of this project UE students practiced planning out a piece of work, identifying primary & secondary colors, and mixing colors with paint.
