TIS Middle School Students Collaborate with the Wichita Art Museum!

Middle school students, Mason Lipsey and Ayana Williams, chosen to represent The Independent School, each selected a painting from the Wichita Art Museum and the Smithsonian American Art Museum's traveling exhibit, researched it and wrote a short reflection on the image and its connection to them.
Mason and Ayanna filmed videos that were created into QR codes and placed next to the art pieces, which has enabled WAM patrons to view the student reflections while looking at that piece of art. As of today, the dozen reflections from students have more than 1,100 views! The exhibit is in place until mid-May.
