Preschoolers at the Stephens College Children’s School this morning joined elementary students to paint pumpkins that will be on display tomorrow as part of Artrageous Friday.
The school received 70 donated small white pumpkins and a few large ones. After reading a book together, students spread out into groups to decorate them. The pumpkins will be on display in the window of Blanc Studio at 918 E. Broadway for Artrageous Friday, an evening art crawl.
After painting the pumpkins, students continued outdoor activities at the new children’s school garden, where they harvested carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes and other vegetables that will be used for snacks in the schools.
The pumpkin activity comes on the heels of another project that allowed older students to work with younger grades.
“Again, our elementary students served as role models to our younger students,” elementary teacher Beth Watson said. “These projects really reinforce our collaborate educational culture that lets students progress at their own pace.”
Stephens is also a stop on the Artrageous Friday route tomorrow. The Costume Museum and Research Library Gallery will be open with special hours from 6-9 p.m. The "Bohemian Rhapsody" exhibit displays pieces that demonstrate the influence of Bohemian counterculture. The museum is on the mezzanine level of Lela Raney Wood Hall.
