Field Trip to the Art Museum!
Thanks to the generosity of Amway, the Cook Arts Center was given several tickets to take a group of students to the Grand Rapids Art Museum. We used the tickets this week for a special spring break field trip and were able to take Cook Arts Center students Magaly, Daniela and Alejandra to the museum for their first visit ever. The girls were able to take in the beautiful jewelry of Alexander Calder which is one of the major exhibits at the museum right now. That exhibit was particularly fitting as all three of the girls had taken jewelry classes at the Cook Arts Center before and enjoy making their own jewelry in their spare time. In addition, we were able to drop by the education center for several activities including collage-making. They even got a chance to make themselves into a moving Calder mobile! Thank you very much to Amway for making this special field trip possible!
