A COLLABORATION OF THE CRESTED BUTTE COMMUNITY SCHOOL & THE CRESTED BUTTE MUSIC FESTIVAL

- CBMF Education C


s displayed here were created by high school students after listening to arias from La BohĂŠme. Singer member Ron Earl introduced the students to opera and encouraged them to express the feelings they stening. CBCS teacher Ben Mc-Loughlin, who hosted the project in his classroom, then worked with the hose feelings in their artwork. For most students, this was their first exposure to opera, and therefore d them a new opportunity to seek inspiration to create their artwork. The stunning results range from e and from two-toned to multi-colored. Interpreting music through art - or art through music - is a t supplement to the art curriculum, and one that teaches appreciation of the visual and performing arts experience. We hope you will enjoy viewing this as much as those of us involved in the project have ome to fruition.
