Our most recent field trip was to the Cotuit Art Center. We had a blast! First, we got a tour of the Art Center. We talked about most of the paintings and sculptures. Then we went to the workshop. We had to run because it was raining. We made an art chain. We each made different cut-outs from construction paper and we chained them together. It was awesome! Then, we ran back to the Art Center and they gave us a scavenger hunt to do! It had all sorts of questions on it. It was very fun! We didn’t get to all the questions, but it was still fun. We went back to sit down and they asked us what we had answered. It was so much fun!

What an amazing day for a walking trip! We learned about the life of Falmouth’s own Katharine Lee Bates as we traveled Main Street and visited such historically significant spots as the Chamber of Commerce (which used to be Lawrence Academy where Katharine’s siblings attended school) and Odd Fellows Hall (where Katharine herself once attended grammar school). It was a great experience for all!
Despite the weather, the class was in great spirits as we boarded the tugboat, watched an informative video on the history of the canal and tested our skills at monitoring the boat traffic in and out of the canal. After lunch there was a high-spirited trivia game and all the teams did an amazing job! A special thanks to our parent drivers! We couldn’t have done it without you!
On Friday, January 15th, our class ventured off on a field trip to the Cotuit Center for the Arts to get an up-close look at their current exhibit, “First Things First.” This exhibit, being presented by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, featured the works of over 50 Cape Cod artists. These works explored what the artists felt were “those things that are most important to them”. All of the art work was displayed at 4ft., just perfect for student viewing! Groups examined the pieces, asked questions and made insightful comments. Each child also worked in the studio to create a multi-media art project that included a weaving component. Finally, students worked as individuals, in pairs or in groups to complete a museum scavenger hunt.
Thanks to our chaperones/drivers! We would not have been able to experience this without you! It was a great visit and I would recommend checking this (free!) exhibit out as a family. The Cotuit Center for the Arts is open Mondays-Saturdays from 10:00-5:00 P.M.
