Go van Gogh van, out and about!

September 30, 2009

Go van Gogh van

Today marks the end of our first month of Go van Gogh programs for the 2009-10 school year, and Go van Gogh volunteers and staff are excited to be back in the classrooms! 

The Go van Gogh program, in its 31st year, serves elementary schools within Dallas city limits, bringing interactive conversations about works of art and art-making activities to over fifteen thousand students annually. The Go van Gogh van is out and about four days a week; at a different school with a different program each day. We have a great variety of programs for the 2009-10 school year.  Among them, Lights, Camera, Action!, a new addition inspired by the All the World’s a Stage exhibition that involves students in role-playing and creative movement activities.  

Today, the Go van Gogh team is at a South Dallas elementary school, and volunteers are visiting third grade classrooms with one of my favorite programs: Stories in Art.  We are capturing student responses to the morning’s program and are posting them to Twitter, so check back to hear what students have to say.

Visit our web site  to learn more about the Go van Gogh programs we are offering this year. We hope to be visiting your classrooms soon!
