We had such a great trip to the art museum in Columbus that we are going back again for their next program! The topic is "Fables and Myths," and their program uses "art, storytelling, interactive games, and hands-on activities to introduce students to various fables, myths, and folktales." The students will get a chance to learn in the galleries and then make a take-home art project in their studio.
Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, April 9
Time: 9:00 am – 11:00 am (Eastern Time) This is an early morning to leave here with the time change- it takes close to an hour to drive there.
Age: K-5th grade- please let me know if you have pre-k students that you think would be able to participate also.
Details: Should wear comfortable clothes for sitting on floor. (There will be an art project too so keep your child's artistic personality in mind when choosing clothes!)
Parents are welcome to come and stay with their children. Younger siblings are welcome as long as they are not disruptive. There is a hands-on area for young kids to play in if parents want/ need to take them somewhere during the art project.
Here is the website for directions and more info.
Please RSVP to Rebecca Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 31, and let me know if you have any questions.
