Iowa Arts Council
La Salle Catholic School received a grant from the Iowa Arts Council to fund a special art project. Dubuque artist, Rachel Spurling introduced students to the surrealism style of art. She showed examples of her work and showed examples from well-known artists Salvador Dali and Max Ernst. Rachel spent about 75 minutes with four groups, preschool, kindergarten-first-second, third-fourth, and fifth-sixth. Each group participated in an activity appropriate for their age and skill level.
Students in kindergarten through grade 6 visited the Dubuque Museum of Art. A grant from the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center paid for the bus for the field trip.
