Interpretive Dance by Texas School Children at Cathy Breslaw's Exhibition: Color, Space and Beauty

Color, Space and Beauty : An Exhibition of the Work of Cathy Breslaw at the Patterson - Appleton Center for Visual Arts, Denton, Texas
Exhibition Director, Caroline Holley shared a video and photos. She explains below how the classes of school children participated in Cathy Breslaw's exhibition "Color Space Beauty" at the Patterson-Appleton Center for Visual Arts in Denton Texas....on view thru December 30th:
  See video here:

"Just a bit of insight into the tours... some of the docents have had the students walk through your show and sketch their interpretation of the individual pieces while listing descriptive words that come to their mind as they view each piece. From there, they created an interpretive dance based on the descriptive words, this is the video I included. Each docent has a different approach, for example, one docent had their group write a haiku about their favorite piece. I think it has been a great experience for everyone involved!
Finally, you’ll see some photos of the interactive work stations we created for the kids this year where they have a chance to create their own fiber creations which were inspired by your “Carousel” piece. Each class creates a base and the next group adds layers to it. A local furniture store donated thousands of left over swatches for us to use – the kids have loved it!"
