This winter, St. Georges Highschool students (grade 4&5) met an uncommon artist : Montrealer Miss me is not only a wheatpaste pro (wall-pasted paper technique), but she is also one of the few women in street art whose work is recognized internationally. She presented her artistic process, her inspirations and aspirations; live demonstration included!

A group of students then had the opportunity to experience first hand the whole wheatpasting process by collaborating with Miss me for an education-themed art project. Once the concept was chosen — knowledge through the eyes of young people from all backgrounds —, they were hard at work under the supervision of the artist and MU art educator : drawing images with tracing paper, image enlargement, cutting and gluing. They can be proud of the final result!
