Dorchester Students Learn New Art Form
The Friend Sentinel has profiled Dorchester's art program and its recent focus on screen printing.
The paper reports that Shea-McCoy visited Dorchester as part of the Artist in Residence program that is funded in part by the Nebraska Arts Council.
Dorchester students got to learn more about screen printing thanks to the Artist in Residence program.
According to the Sentinel, Shea-McCoy has a master’s degree in textile design.
Bristol said she believes art education has declined in importance over the years, but she hopes the visit from the artist helps fuel a fire for the arts in students.
Shea-McCoy visited Dorchester for four days from Jan. 30 to Feb. 2.
