9 and 10 year olds
Sister Corita's Summer of Love Exhibition.
Wellington City Gallery
Carrie and I took two classes to the Wellington City Art Gallery today to see Sister Corita's exhibition.
It was a very stressful build up to the day. We were short of parent helpers, permission forms and payments. We were rushing about at the last minute trying to ensure we had EOTC forms completed, medical needs catered for, the bus booked.
This was on top of the classes being other teachers classes.
Not a lot of this could be avoided. It's just the way it is when children are taken off site.
All that aside, it was a successful day. Our skeleton support crew were wonderful parents. The teachers at the gallery were well organised and made the day run smoothly, offering very interesting sessions for the children.
The children were taken around the gallery, introduced to font differences, display ideas and given a few challenges that made them focus a little closer.
In the art room each child made a letter of the alphabet using collage and screen printing in a very efficient and supported way.
