Brinton Museum Hosts Program for School Children

Artist/illustrator Victor Juhasz is talking about himself and how he got started as an artist, and drawing caricatures of himself, students and teachers during a series of presentations this week at the Brinton Museum in Big Horn.

The programs, which started Monday, are for pupils in grades kindergarten through fifth in the Sheridan, Big Horn and Buffalo schools. Presentations continue through Friday.

Speaking to a group of second-graders from Coffeen Elementary Tuesday afternoon, the artist, who's illustrated several books that are on display at the museum, said reading is a great way to learn.

Dr. Ariel Downing, who's the Brinton's curator of museum education, explained a little about the program.

She said the program gives students a chance to get a little immersion into art.
