Capital City Arts Initiative at Mark Twain Elementary

CCAI at Mark Twain Elementary School
Carson City Nevada

We are delighted to present an image from the CCAI Artists In Education Program at Mark Twain Elementary School. UNR grad student Amerique Powell and CCAI staffer Christel Passink are teaching after-school art workshops for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders during March and April.

The image: student creating her art in the torn-paper self-portraits workshop; the art history section of the lesson showed students examples of artists’ portraits from the early 20th century avant-garde.

We give special thanks to Mark Twain Elementary School and the Carson City School District for their collaboration with CCAI.
