LOOP Intersession at Campus Elementary

Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities is partnering with the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids / Grand Rapids Public Schools to provide arts programming during the alternative calendar schools' Intersession (February 23-27, 2009.)

Several contract artists from the Cook Arts Center are working with the LOOP students at Campus Elementary and Grand Rapids Montessori to celebrate Black History Month through activities in art, dance and music.

Here are some snapshots from an art class taught by Cook Arts Center contract artist Kim Vandenberg this morning. Students created wall-hangings influenced by hide-paintings and beadwork of the Zulu tribes.

GAAH serves hundreds of children each year through our off-site programs, and we are proud of our community partnerships.

Miss. Kim talks to the class about their project, and shows examples...

Students get to work with the assistance of Miss. Kim, and her "helpers" (LOOP staff and volunteers)

Completed wall hangings! Everyone did such a nice job!
