EXHIBIT STATEMENT
Bryant Middle School serves a diverse population of seventh and eighth graders from across Salt Lake City. The school boundaries stretch from Rose Park to Federal Heights and from Glendale to the Avenues. Bryant also serves students from The Road Home and the YWCA shelter. Approximately 400 students attend this public school, 76 percent of which speak more than one language. Bryant students are enthusiastic, work together well as a community, and are eager to learn.

The Bryant Visual Art classes offer a foundation in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. Students learn drawing basics before branching out into chalk pastel, watercolor, papier-mâché, glass fusing, string art, encaustic painting, and wheel-thrown pottery. Art classes help students express themselves and develop higher-level thinking and problem-solving skills. Because practice and effort are emphasized over raw talent, all students can be successful. Ms. Pierce has been teaching at Bryant since 2005 and Ms. Mack is a student teacher from the University of Utah.
