TODAY IS THE DAY!!
Be sure to check out CVA's fabulous new makeover. After many hours, the CVA will be launching our new website TODAY. If thats not enough, we will also be revealing our
NEW LOGO that was voted on by the CVA Board
(many designs were submitted and it was a tough choice).
We are excited about this launch and
hope you will share this excitement with us.
***Thank you to all those who submitted logos in the the Logo Competition and a BIG Thank You to Photobiz, LLC. for our new website!
In celebration of Black History month, last month, our Kidstudio: Mixed Media students (ages 4-7) learned about African-American artist: Beverly Buchanan. Beverly, a graduate of Bennett College here in Greensboro, is a sculpture artist who focuses on southern, localized architecture and is recognized for her Shack Sculptures and Drawings. Check out her work at http://beverlybuchanan.com/
The students loved this lesson. It took us two weeks to complete the project. Like Beverly, we used wood scraps, paint, cardboard and many other miscelleaneous items to create these colorful shacks. The students went wild with their creativity!!! We had some say it was their "restaurant", or their "missile launching pad".
Gotta love children's imaginations!!!!!
