WIU Art Trip

We were lucky enough to be invited to WIU for a day of art making.  Students began their day in the jewelry making lab and learned to make rings.

Then they were able to spend time learning and practicing throwing on the pottery wheel.

We have been invited to go to WIU several times now.  The Professors and students there have been awesome to our kids and it has been a great experience.

Chicago Trip

Art Club took a trip to Chicago this year.  It was a rainy day but we still had a lot of fun.

We took the train into the city and had pizza at Giordano’s.

Were some of us really enjoyed that our waitress brought us our own pitcher of soda.

From there we ventured through the city to the Art Institute.

But we didn’t care!

At the Art Institute, students were able to see some of the art we talked about through out the year.
