Project Description:

Williams' "Project Van Go" provides schools and rural communities with free hands-on workshops in art education. The outreach program is aimed at students, parents, and other teachers in remote areas, bringing art into the lives of many who would otherwise not have the exposure. Workshops may involve mask-making, murals, weaving, pottery, and batik. Lessons also include historical background and analysis of finished work. In addition, Skyview students travel as assistants, gaining the experience of engaging in the creative process with those in other towns and states.
