Through the new Emerging Visions program, Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) takes its mission beyond the center walls, creating opportunities for students to engage with contemporary art in their own classrooms. GRACE invites educators and students to engage in an ongoing program that provides art enrichment content to educators based on the exhibition Centroid Towns: Like a Passing Shadow, featuring new work by photographer Nate Larson. Working directly with FCPS Art Educators, GRACE created an educator’s packet with an overarching theme and supporting concepts to integrate into classroom curriculum for each stage of schooling, K–12. Teachers and students are invited to view the exhibition and meet the curator and artist (if available). Students can respond to a theme by creating their own artwork in any medium. Student artwork, as selected by GRACE staff, will be exhibited as part of the Emerging Visions exhibition at GRACE, June 6–27, 2020.
