Summer Fun

The Cook Arts Center and the Cook Library Center summer programs are in full swing now, and students have been having fun while learning a lot at both facilities. Each week, Cook Arts Center students meet up with the Cook Library Center students for field trips to different locations. During the first couple weeks of programming, students ventured out to the campus of Aquinas College where they not only saw the beautiful trails and buildings, but also Circle Theater's production of Robin Hood! The performance was fabulous and afterwards, students got a chance to explore the set and talk with some of the actors and prop designers about what it's like to perform and what it takes to work on the set.

We also paid a visit to the Grand Rapids Children's Museum, where students always have a great time exploring their surroundings in a hand's on environment encouraging them to use their imaginations!

The field trips have been fun but are also just a small part of the awesome activities students have been doing so far, including dancing, clay projects, reading, theater, and more!
