Kids Art Expo, sponsored by TD Bank
Thanks to a generous grant from TD Bank, RoCA will present the Kids Art Expo, a studio art and creative writing field trip program in conjunction with our fall exhibition Tell Me a Story, Now! on view October 14 through December 16, 2012. The program will serve ELL (English Language Learners) from Haverstraw, New York at no cost to the students, their families, or their schools.
Kids Art Expo will stimulate creativity, learning and language skills. It begins with an interactive tour of RoCA exhibitions exemplifying narrative art across diverse media: from traditional book illustrations to site-specific installations and short films. Students will respond to contemporary art through writing, discussions and art activities. Inspired by the art on view, students will create original, visual stories in RoCA's studios, integrating word and image. A Spanish speaking program assistant will translate and aid ELL students in their writing. The program will culminate with exhibitions of student artwork at local TD Bank branches.
