Students also used Visual Thinking Strategies to study several works of art to help them learn to interpret what an artist might be trying to say or capture in an artwork.  MONA also had an exhibit of artwork created by Native American artists from the Rosebud S.D. area.  The students were very attentive and enjoyed the visit very much.
