Our annual showcase of a month long investigation into the fine arts came to a stunning conclusion last Friday. How proud our children were to be docents for their audience of parents, extended family and friends. The tour begins here.
Words are not enough to experience the joy and wonder at this annual event. After 14 years of curating this show it still continues to inspire and delight everyone including teachers. Children become knowledgeable and aware of a world outside their own. Conversations about art, style, technique are happening at home. Trips to museums become more meaningful. Children are filled with excitement of what they know and what they have learned. Their voices are being heard and their skills are elevated with confidence. They are eager to share what that they know.
All month long we document the process through iMovie. At the gallery opening the movie is running so parents and family can see how the children came to create their masterpieces. Understanding process is recognizing all the skill and intention behind each treasured piece of a child’s work.
I must acknowledge the following wonderful blogs for their inspiration; Arianne at Still Parenting Meghan at Playgroundparkbench and Maggy at Red Ted Art Thank you to Sadie’s mom and Bernadette for their great photos.
