Ely Memorial High School to host local artist, Shaun Chosa

Ely Memorial High School will host teaching artist, Shaun Chosa, through VSA Minnesota's Artists-in-Residence Grant Program. Shaun, a local artist and founder of the Ely Art Group, will work closely with Special Education teacher Ms. Amanda Solum to provide students with enriched experiences that support the school's curriculum. VSA Minnesota works in partnership with schools around the state to make it possible for professional artists to come into the classroom.

Fifteen students in Ms. Solum's class will have the opportunity to engage in creative activities exploring portrait drawing through hands-on activities. Shaun will share his passion for pen and ink work along with exploration of acrylic painting.

Stay tuned,  to find out more about the students’ showcase of what they have learned!

This opportunity has been made possible in part by VSA - The International Organization on Arts and Disability, the Minnesota Department of Education, the Minnesota State Arts Board and support funds from Ely Public Schools.
