Visual artist and motivational speaker Gary Gee visits BMS
Batesville Middle School Sixth, Seventh Grade Art Rotation and 6th , 7th students spent about
25min each with Gary Gee. Gary is a professional fine artist. He spoke a bit about his own work
and studio but mostly interacted with the kids in a very relaxed and positive way. The students
drew random lines on a paper then like looking for shapes in the clouds they created designs on
their paper inspired by these lines. The students enjoyed the relaxed tone in creating just for the
sake of creating.
