In April, Anchorage artist Shala Dobson visited White Mountain for two weeks as the school’s artist-in-residence, thanks to grants made to the Bering Strait School District (BSSD) for the Artist in Schools program. Shala’s visit was only one part of a district-wide effort by BSSD to bring more artists into the schools. By the end of the school year, grants will have brought a total of seven artists into classrooms. In addition to artwork that the students are proud of, the Artists in Schools program engages the community with art projects and promotes the incorporation of art into other areas of the curriculum.
