Exploring Our World

It's already the middle of July and the first session of the new Summer Arts and Learning Program at the Cook Arts Center only has one week left. After three weeks, students have learned fun facts about India, Japan, regions of Africa, Mexico and our very own United States - all through the arts!

Students have also had a chance to explore our own backyard here at the Cook Arts Center. When the sun was shining, participants tested their green thumbs: together, we pulled weeds, planted seeds and learned about some of the different things that it takes to have a successful garden.

Students also had a chance to harvest some of the crops that grew up from last year like rhubarb and mint. Next week students will learn a rhubarb smoothie recipe with our YMCA Heatlth and Nutrition instructor, and they will be using rhubarb straight from the Cook Arts Center garden. Yum!
