Recently our 5th grade classrooms have been visiting the Reed College Cooley Art Gallery. On Friday, Mr. Colvin’s students took a walk over to the gallery. Upon their return, they spent some time writing their reflections of the experience. Below I have quoted from one student...
Lilyana and I were looking at one of the paintings and Lilyana got scared of one of the paintings because on one of them it looked like there was blood on it! She is no longer scared of it anymore (I don’t think). I saw some of the Reed College students there and all of them look very busy and smart. When we made our own art out of tape and paper, I made a car (out of one piece of paper). This was a really fun experience for me and I hope to do it again!
You can read their reflections on the experience on Mr. Colvin’s classroom web site.
