Arts Exhibit

The University of South Dakota K-8 Social Science Methods class, along with members of the Student Veterans Resource Center on campus, created visual art to reflect their views of American veterans for an arts exhibition on Thursday, Oct. 12. Pictured are Professor Jing Williams and student Melissa Griese presenting the money from the art exhibit/silent auction to Post 3061 Commander Jackie Voigt.

USD junior Alex Coker already has a plan for his students someday when he becomes an elementary teacher. Inspired by the art show charity project he and his classmates just completed in USD Elementary Education class K-8 Social Science Methods, Coker is hoping to replicate the project for his own fifth graders someday.

“After going through the process for the event, I can see how I could incorporate this into a 5th grade classroom,” he said. “I really think this would be a great project for kids. It’s inspiring for anyone of any age. I can’t believe the artwork we created! And the best part is that it all goes to a good cause. I’m definitely going to do this!”
