Kids Kids Kids in the Gallery!

Today, the CVA had the pleasure of hosting a wonderful group of third graders (and their teacher with attendant Moms!) from Statford WI.  With only one hour to spare in their busy day, they toured the CVA's main gallery to review the current exhibit Lost & Found.  Led by Valerie Berkely, CVA Curriculum Director, the kids were put to task!  Already well-versed in the ideas of using materials both recycled and repurposed, the kids used their powers of close observation to "find" specific items that were "lost" within the artwork on view.  Competition aside, the kids vied for the highest counts.  How many keys did they see?  How many dogs?  How many books?  How many blocks?  You get the picture!  Notebooks in hand, the kids tallied their results while discussing the various symbols and meanings presented in the artworks displayed.  Everyone enjoyed finding a new outlook on art.  Stop by this exhibit for might be surprised at what you find!
