Bolinas-Stinson School Student Exibition

Dear Bolinas Stinson School Families,


Make sure to mark your calendars for a very special upcoming school event at the Bolinas Museum from January 22-January 30, 2022! Our Art Specialists and homeroom teachers have been collaborating on projects with our students to help take what they see and experience in nature, then use it to create amazing works of art! This upcoming school exhibit is a perfect example of environmental education at its best - merging curiosity, discovery, science, our environment, and ART! 

Kudos to our amazing staff for making this happen with our students. A special thanks to Nuria Martinez, our lead Art shop teacher and Mixed Media specialist; Janis Yerington, our Painting and Drawing Specialist; Kathy Bustamante, our Clay Specialist; and Ed Mann, our interim Woodshop Specialist, for their hard work to bring this vision to life! An extra special thank you to Harriet Kossman, who has long fostered a partnership between our school and the Bolinas Museum. She planted the seed years ago, and has patiently nurtured it to fruition. For more information, please use this link to view the full Bolinas Museum writeup (excerpt below).

The wonder of our local environment provides an endlessly engaging and authentic context for learning. This exhibition features the creative expressions of Bolinas-Stinson Schools students inspired by an interdisciplinary approach fostered by their teachers in collaboration with Point Reyes National Seashore Association. Together, the BSUSD art shop, homeroom teachers, and PRNSA representatives created a science matrix to explore phenomena occurring in our local environment. Guided by this information and related questions, outdoor exploration, and art materials, students were encouraged to express their ideas through science and art, and in doing so, deepen their understanding of how the health and well-being of the natural environment are interconnected with the health and well-being of their daily lives.

I hope you are as excited as I am to visit the Bolinas Museum for this incredible opportunity!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions. Looking forward to seeing this special exhibit soon!
