It was a great day at Volland - the second graders from Alma Elementary and Maple Hill Elementary traveled to Volland to see the "Rural | Urban" exhibit. Two of the exhibiting artists Shin-hee Kang Chin and Caleb Taylor spoke to the students about their art and answered many insightful questions! The students then wandered through and looked at each piece of art while the adults, Melissa Castillo (Alma Elementary teacher), Becky Frank (Maple Hill Elementary), Alicia Stott, Art Teacher, the artists, and the new Volland Store intern from K-State, Elizabeth Hayes, prepared the tables for an origami activity. They also learned to write their name in So. Korean, the "mother tongue" of Shin-hee Chin. Thank you, Galen Craghead, Elementary School Principal of Wabaunsee USD 329, for making this visit possible!" 

I am attaching a link to my drive that has all of our pictures from the event.
