A 12 SIDNEY HERALD, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2019 FROMPAGE1 for me is working on students' self-esteem and the association of learning with fun. It's really important to me to have a less structured classroom. A classroom in which students feel free to express themselves creatively." None of the proj- ects completed in the program are grad- ed. Newman said she doesn't like the lim- itations a grading sys- tem puts on artistic expression. It's part of what drew her to the museum field in- stead of traditional art education. "I'm trying to en- courage kids. Whatev- er they come up with, there's value to that and I will help them find value," she said. "It's not something they have to worry about succeeding or failing at." Her philosophy is echoed by Mondak Executive Director Cheri Friedman, who said, "Art is so subjec- tive to an individual. What is interesting and attracts one per- son may not attract another. It's the same thing with these kids learning to do dif- ferent styles. They learn what they enjoy doing." The lessons Each session is tailored to class in- terests. Newman ex- plained that perhaps a class is really into chalk pastels. They would work on a chalk pastel project while Newman taught stu- dents the history of the genre and intro- duced chalk pastel works throughout his- tory. The first session will be focused on egg tempera, a method Leonardo da Vinci fa- mously used. "I keep my lessons fluid," Newman said. "That's another real- ly important concept to me, is to be able to take individual as- sessments, skill-level assessments, incor- porate those into the medium and take the class where we all want to go together." With such a broad age range, interests can vary. The one- room school concept allows younger kids to learn from older students and the older students gain a sense of responsibility for younger peers. They also gain more a per- sonal investment in the class. "They can learn from somebody who's not just a teacher, somebody they look up to," Newman said.

Montana has the highest rate of sui- cide per capita in the nation. Contributing factors to that star- tling statistic include elevation, isolation, the "cowboy up" cul- ture, lack of vitamin D and alcoholism rates. NBC News also named the strong gun culture as a factor. 6. Online registra- tion closes at noon Peruse our shoppe of re-purposed creations, vintage finds and refinished fimaiture.

The current scoop Sidney Director of Public Works Jeff Hintz said the city must come up with 5 percent of the project in order to qualify for BaRSAA funding. He estimated the cost of the 10th Avenue project at just over $50,000. The city street was in disrepair after years of beet harvest and concrete truck traffic. "It was in really tough shape," Hintz said. After a few delays due to equipment fail- ure, 10th Avenue SE and NE will be com- pleted the last week of August 2019 after the final lift of asphalt is placed on Wednesday, Aug. 28. The city's goal to open the road before beet harvest will be met. grants or monies avail- able for street improve- ments. BaRSAA pro- vides that. It's small amounts, but it's some- thing. With good plan- ning, we can do quite a bit." What's next With annual BaR- SAA funding available by application, Hintz said the city's next project will be con- necting 6th Avenue SE behind the high school to 14th Street SE. With the bike path's fifth and final phase com- pleted this summer, the irrigation lateral in the location is now piped and the streets can be connected. "There have been citizens who live back there who have been asking for this," Hintz said of the project. Currently, Interstate Engineering has pro- vided the City of Sid- ney with project plans. The city is waiting for a permit from MDOT for an approach on 14th Street SE, which is also a state high- way (Route 488). Hintz doesn't expect any is- sues in securing the permit. When the per- mit is handed over, the city will submit the plans for funding ap- proval with BaRSAA. Other future projects on the list for BaRSAA funding include estab- lishing a curb and gut- ter district to address the southwest side of town between Central and Lincoln, and over- lays for 14th Street SW, 9th Avenue SW and 12th Avenue SW by the hospital. Hintz said those projects are part of a 4-5 year plan. "It's a good program so far," Hintz said.
