A creative workshop geared to students in middle school will be offered on Saturday, March 21, as part of the Montana State University President's Fine Arts Series.

“Our Identity by Design” is a free, hands-on workshop for students in grades 6-8. Two sessions of the workshop, also known as Art Saturday, will be offered, one from 9 a.m.-noon and the second from 1-4 p.m. Both will be offered in 107 Haynes Hall in the School of Art on the MSU campus.

As part of the workshop, participants will make a personal medicine bag to hold symbolic objects of their choosing. Students will explore their own identity through the use of symbols, iconography and objects with the use of indigenous techniques of the Plains Indians. Bozeman contemporary Native North American artist Susan Stewart will lead the workshop.

Space in the workshops is limited, and pre-registration is encouraged. For more information or to register, call 994-6654.
