Do you ever wonder how children view the world around them? Well, there isa new exhibition in Art Connections that shows us through art how kids view and interpret the natural world.
Pre-kindergarten through second grade students at S. P. Livingston Elementary School collaboratively created artwork as a response to the natural landscape at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. As part of the Weaver Academy of Art program, a continuing arts in education partnership between the Cummer Museum and Duval County Public Schools, the students in the Exceptional Student Education department experimented with colored pencils, paint, and paper collage while enjoying the inspiring surroundings on the St. Johns River.
To view the students’ artwork visit the hands-on interactive area of the Museum called Art Connections. The students’ work will be on exhibit from March 7 through May 9.
This exhibit is made possible through the generosity of J.Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver, The Dianne T. and Charles E. Rice Family Foundation, The Chartrand Foundation and EverBank.
