On November 10, I produced a couple of arts activities for 40 students at Venice Elementary School in Venice, Illinois. Tamara Miller, who coordinates after-school programs at the school, had invited me. The size of the group led us to divide them and participate in two activities.
I had one group create vision boards while the other group participated in a mixed media exhibit. After 20 to 30 minutes on one activity, I had the groups switch places. We had a good time selecting images, pasting them on boards, observing photographic images from the Eugene B. Redmond Collection, and listening to audio recordings of poets reading their works.
