Art as a process frequently is visual and tactile in nature. It is part
of the daily experience of a young child. Blended with music, movement,
drama, math, science and literacy the children’s experience unfolds. The
children’s artwork is currently on display at the Children’s Creative
Learning Center’s (CCLC) 30th Annual Art Exhibit. The show runs from May 5th
until June 13th. If you haven’t spotted the exhibit yet, take a look in
the GC Gallery. The pieces are documented through photographs, text,
print, mixed media, and sculptural forms. Images emerge which offer each
viewer a glimpse into the perspective of a young child. Be sure to peruse the interesting pieces located in the cases outside the bookstore as well as along the corridor windows where you’ll find recycled water bottles decorated with various objects and beading.
