Holtville Art Classes
Yesterday, the museum visited Holtville High School and gave presentations on the coiled-clay art program to two art classes. These presentations followed from the press coverage we received on the pilot program that we completed with Southwest High School. It was a little disappointing that no one in either class had heard of the Kumeyaay before, and no one knew anything about the geoglyphs that are spread throughout our deserts. But they were interested in seeing the few artifacts that we brought and it looks like we will be completing some hands-on work with the classes in the next few weeks.
