GHAPS 4th Graders visit ArtWalk
For the last three years, I have helped organize a class trip to ArtWalk for Grand Haven Area Public School’s Fourth Graders. The first year, we created chalk art tessellations with the students. In 2015, the students spent the morning looking at the Detroit Institute of Art’s traveling exhibit. Grand Haven was one of the first towns outside of Metro Detroit to host their traveling exhibit. We loved watching residents and visitors consider these reproductions from their collection.
The administration and teachers at Grand Haven have been wonderful to work with organizing this class trip. It has been interesting for me to watch the teachers discuss what the students could learn from their visit to ArtWalk. What has impressed me is how collaboratively they work together to offer the best possible opportunity for our kids. The students will view the different entries and encourage them to “See, Think, and Wonder” about art.
