Interview During Artpace’s Touring Program
Every Thursday, Artpace is graced with kids of all ages from schools and organizations that come to take part in Artpace’s Touring Program. The free touring program allows students to look, learn, create, and reflect about contemporary art.
Last week, students from the Enrichment Academy were seen exploring the exhibits and participating in hands-on activities. Graduate intern Amy Elms sat down with Rachel, one of the students’ chaperones, to find out more about Artpace’s Touring Program from a visitor’s perspective:
What encouraged the Enrichment Academy to come to Artpace?
The students have been doing art lessons in the classroom and we wanted to take that further and allow them to learn more about art here, outside of the classroom.
What do you think the students enjoy the most about Artpace?
They enjoy everything! There isn’t one thing in particular that the students love more than another.
What is your favorite part of Artpace’s Touring Program?
I really enjoyed the WindowWorks exhibit.
Can you tell me a little bit about your feelings of the importance of art education?
I think that art education is so important. I have always encouraged it. I think that art really helps the students in all other areas too, like math and science. Children absorb so much at this age. It’s amazing to hear them talk about things like art and realize that they are having adult conversations with each other.
