ACES Students Visit Walker Art Center

Twenty-five ACES students took a field trip to the Walker Art Center on Saturday, March 2. The 4th grade students from Linwood Monroe Arts Plus School, Jenny Lind Elementary School, and Green Central School had the opportunity to participate in Free First Saturday- a family event offered by the center each month.

The theme of Saturday’s event was “Kids Film Festival.” The 4th graders watched short films and talked about which films were their favorite. Students were also given the opportunity to participate in art activities and to explore the art gallery. Said one excited student, “Oh my gosh- there’s so much art in here!” For many of the students, this was a new experience and many showed interest in going back in the spring to see the sculpture gardens.
