Chaotic, Noisy, Messy, Smelly…that’s my memory of the last two weeks. Imagine 100s of 4th graders in the same space!! They had the chance to experience the arts and so much more at Artworks.
Thanks to Denise Cosper and Jeanette Fleury for organizing and our teachers Velvet Underwood, Ruth Vermeer, Docent Jeanette Fleury, Janitza Sawyer those children danced, sang, made art and learned about the different art mediums though our Art Attack and Sweet: 16 Years of Artworks Artists Exhibit. Some even bought art in our gift shop and met the artist!!
These children came from Osceola and Mecosta counties and it was made possible due to the generosity of Yoplait, Reed City Federation of Women’s Clubs and the Big Rapids Federation of Women’s Clubs.
This is what Artworks is all about. Dancing, singing, laughing, playing, learning. Doing things you don’t normally do. Finding your creative spirit. Bringing the arts to life. Everyday!
So, my good friends. When was the last time that you danced, sang, laughed loudly, played and learned something new? Come to Artworks. We will find something for you! I promise.
Artworks… Bringing the Arts to Life…. And so much more.
Don’t forget to stop by Artworks and see the newest exhibit, Sweet: 16 Years of Artworks Artist. Pat Heeter and team, once again, did a fantastic job.
