4th Grade Trek to the Des Moines Art Center

Students  at Edmunds took part in the annual 4th Grade trek to the Des Moines Art Center to tour the world-class art and gain a greater understanding of what they have learned in art class.   Over 85 students, including the upper level IELC students,  split up into five groups to explore the three buildings of the Art Center.  Over the previous weeks art instructor David Borzo had prepared the students with photos and displays of much of the art they were going to see. The students learned about observing art and how to share thoughts and feelings about what they see.  The Art Center Docents had their hands full with questions and comments! The students showed great interest and respect for the amazing work, and the hour flew by quickly.
