A Summer Kids Club kind of blast!
The second half of the Kids Club Summer program was just as exciting as the first. We took several kids to our 3rd annual Congreso Kids where the students played games and “Discovered a Different Direction” through the city themed music and skits in the plenary sessions. The theme of the event complimented well our summer curriculum, “Life is a Trip,” which challenged students to think through the road blocks and dead ends we face in life and instead choose to make a U-turn.
Our students were visited by a number of local artists throughout the summer who taught them new art techniques and challenged them to expand their creative perspectives. The students produced some great art work, some of which will be put on display for the “Art of Restoration” event in November. Giving students an opportunity to apply what they were learning in art sessions, we took them to visit the National Gallery of Art and traveled by bus and metro!
