When was the first time you went to a gallery? Or what about the first time you took your kids to their first gallery exhibition? Our students were able to experience their very own gallery opening this past Sunday June 3rd, 2018 which exhibited their art work from the past few weeks. Each little artist stood in front of his or her work with joy and pride, explaining their each brush stroke to their friends and family.
You know I watch these children run into class eager to get their hands on new material each week. They leave class with this goofy smile reaching for their parents' hand, dragging them inside to show them what they worked on. After each class, I ask how their project went and what they learned that day. It amazes me every time when I see a four year old who can't even tie her own shoe laces explain the way she portrayed cubism in her painting that day.
These young children come to class expecting to have fun and they allow their minds to wander into the world of creativity. When these kids saw their projects hanging on the wall of a gallery, a new purpose was embedded in their artistic minds. They reached out their hand to parents, teachers, and friends, with newfound pride.
We hope that this day remains in their memory for a very long time. (Or until next year!)
Thanks to everyone who stopped by.
