“I like to draw pictures,” said Trey, 5, as he showed off his artwork, which included a colorful lizard and a green spaceship.
Trey, and 140 other children from OCCC’s Child Development Center and Lab School, recently displayed artwork for the 2013 Art Show which ran from April 15 through 19 at the FACE Center.
The children learn more effectively through hands-on crafts, such as art, said Lee Ann Townsend, lab supervisor. The children, ranging in age from 6 weeks through 8 years, engage in daily group activities and projects.
The art show is a fun way to show people what the children do at their school, Townsend said. The art show is an annual event put on by the children’s center in celebration of the Week of the Young Child, April 14 through 20, Townsend said.
The Art show featured more than 200 pieces. The images included abstract art, bush babies, rocket ships (complete with passengers), engines and emergency exit.
“I’m really excited about people coming to see my pictures,” Trey said. “I really like to draw and want to do it again.”
To prove his point, Trey drew a picture on the spot to give the Pioneer reporter as a souvenir of her visit to the center.
The Family and Community Education Center is located at 6500 S. Land Ave. in Oklahoma City.
