EHS art project now on display at the Muckleshoot Library

The learning for Enumclaw High School art students began with Native American artist Katherine Arquette from the Muckleshoot Tribe. The class work that followed her visit centered around resources from Cathy Calvert, the EHS Native American coordinator, and a field trip to the Seattle Art Museum to experience “S’abadeb - The Gifts: Pacific Coast Salish Art and Artists.”

The learning for Enumclaw High School art students began with Native American artist Katherine Arquette from the Muckleshoot Tribe. The class work that followed her visit centered around resources from Cathy Calvert, the EHS Native American coordinator, and a field trip to the Seattle Art Museum to experience “S’abadeb – The Gifts: Pacific Coast Salish Art and Artists.”

The student work will remain on display at the Muckleshoot Library through March 5.

Works of art tell their own stories about the teachings they embody through the creativity of the artist, EHS art teacher Amy Weber said. In this exhibit, she explained, students of non-Native backgrounds tell a story through a rich cultural context. This context encourages an understanding of one another through artistic means.

The EHS students who created these pieces are from an integrated advanced art and advanced placement studio art class. Before any creation of artwork began, the students embarked on a cultural journey to discover the technical and spiritual side of Pacific Northwest Coast art.

Students with work on display includ: Kaithlyn Twehues, Holly Pitzel, Kasia Goch, Katie McKenna, Hailey Machin, Sharidan Snider, Denali Jepson, Kaleigh Mitchell, Candace Johnson, Oliver Waller, Whitney Gerard, Erich Roberts, Tasha Boisjolie, Kristen Haggstrom, Jordynn Higgins and Bailey Josie.

The Muckleshoot Library is at 39917 Auburn-Enumclaw Rd. S.E. It is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The library is closed Sunday.
