ART SCHMART!!

Carter and Cooper are studying Art and Art History at our homeschool co-op this year. One of the suggested activities for extra credit was to visit an art gallery. The suggested gallery was the S.P.A.C.E. gallery, here in Savannah. An artist named Erica Rollings was having a exhibition called, "Stained Glass: Beyond The Traditional". As you can tell, it was beautiful. There were a variety of works, ranging from game boards (a favorite of the boys) and parts of
the human body to Celtic designs and zodiac symbols.
This stained glass divider showcases the zodiac symbols. During this field trip, we found out about many of the programs that the City of Savannah offered here at the S.P.A.C.E. gallery. We were so impressed that we decided to take an art class through the city called Hands On Clay for Kids.

A work of art and a work of heart!

This is the group of children (all boys in such a breakable environment . . . whew) who went to visit the gallery. All of the boys are on the GCAT Swim Team together and attend co-op together. The lady in the picture is Ms. Tiffany, an artist herself, who has planned a great deal of the co-op art study. If you look behind the boys and Ms. Tiff, you will see the beautiful stained glass gameboards that all of the boys loved!!
