The Most Adorable Exhibit of All Time: Creative Minds, Creative Children @SheridanCollege
This year, in what may be the most adorable exhibit of all time, Sheridan’s Early Childhood Centres are celebrating the Week of the Child by exhibiting art work by our faculty, students’, staff’s and community’s children in the Sheridan College Art Gallery.
Their art is on display from October 11th to 25th, 2013. This week of October 20th to 26th was proclaimed the Week of the Child by The Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario (AECEO) in 1980.
The Week of the Child is a time for communities across Ontario to:
* reflect on the rights and the needs of our children;
* renew our commitment to improve the quality of opportunities for all children and their families;
* review how well we care for and educate the future adults, parents and leaders of Ontario.
Madeleine Schumann, Supervisor of the Sheridan College Child Care Centre, explained “we decided to celebrate the Week of the Child in this manner to show the importance of creativity. Art is used to express our emotions and tell our story to the world. Children can see or think ‘outside the box’ and we hope this exhibition will inspire adults to do the same.”
The exhibit has been named “Creative Minds, Creative Children,” which is based our new college motto, “Get Creative,” and the idea that our creative community shares these values and talents with the children.
Madeleine continued, “please visit the art gallery and sign the guestbook to show your support. The children will definitely enjoy reading your comments.”
The Sheridan Art Gallery is located in the AA-Wing at 1430 Trafalgar, Oakville, Ontario, Canada.
