It’s Elementary—Artworks at Carlos Gilbert: Students Channel O’Keeffe at DNCU Cordova
This special exhibition is in support of ArtWorks, a program of the Partners in Education Foundation for the Santa Fe Public Schools.
In September 2015, Marcella Stark’s 1st graders and Christine Biree’s 2nd graders (both at Carlos Gilbert Elementary School) welcomed ArtWorks into their learning experience. Professional Teaching Artist Jen Alexander went into the classrooms and - with the help of the ArtWorks trained teachers - prepared the students for a visit to a museum. They focused on journaling, sketching and creating art with their bodies, also called “tableau.” Jen accompanied the classes to the New Mexico Museum of Art to enjoy the new exhibition, “O’Keeffe in Process,” of Georgia O'Keeffe's work. After the field trip, the children had another workshop to reflect on their experience and create art of their own, using oil pastels. The resulting pieces are now being displayed at DNCU Cordova.
ArtWorks' mission is to make the arts personally meaningful to children and elementary school teachers through an integrated program of art-making, viewing live performances and exhibits, and achieving understanding through inquiry and reflection. Partners in Education Foundation for the Santa Fe Public Schools seeks to marshal resources and create alliances to foster excellence in our public schools.
Note: Art is only for exhibit, not for sale.
