Today the CVA has a group of 6 Guilford County School Principals for a "Day of Service." These principals are working hands-on in our classrooms (I caught some elbow deep in papier mache) this morning and then helping us hang artwork in our Gallery for our Dirty Fingernails show (let's hope they are level friendly.) We are so thankful for not only the help of these principals, but glad to have the opportunity to show them just how important the visual arts are in education and how additional art enrichment can improve the lives of our youth.
Below is a note from our coordinator for the day, Vicky. We will have additional blog posts this week from the principals that have participated today - stop back by to read from the leaders in our local schools.
As a teacher and service-learning coordinator at Morehead Elementary an Expressive Arts Magnet in Guilford County, I am thrilled with the possibilities for our students to continue to seek arts enrichment in Greensboro at the Center for Visual Artists (CVA). In addition, I am eager to showcase how a partnership with CVA and Guilford County teachers and students can be establish into a successful service-learning opportunity that addresses the need for high quality arts awareness in our community.
