Snow Days, Aquinas Drop-In Art and Robots

The Grandville Avenue Arts and Humanities has been hit with the rest of Michigan by what is being called the Blizzard of 2011! After getting more than 14 inches of snow, GRPS canceled school for three days, and gave everyone here at the Cook Arts Center and the Cook Library Center a reminder that we live in Michigan! While everyone's been out having fun in the snow, (and less fun driving in it), we look back over the past couple of weeks at some of the great activities we've been enjoying.

Over at the Cook Library Center Aquinas students have been helping out with our Drop-In Art classes, which have been rescheduled for Fridays from 3:30 to 4:30. Last week they had a great time with students from Cesar Chavez Elementary, helping them build small sculptures. Students at the Cook Library Center have also been enjoying a large marble drop, donated by the VanderWilp family. Thank you so much for your generosity, VanderWilps!

Over at the Cook Arts Center we've been getting creative as well. The Press Club with Ms. Lori has started and we all had fun making magnetic poetry. Ms. Deb's card-making class made a special batch of thank you cards for our friend Andrea Wallace, who donated over 200 boxes of crayons! Ms. T'Alyne's sculpture class made some amazing robots, and below, you can watch a video of our friends Egypt (aka "Z") and Giselle describing the special features of the robots they made.
