The Wonder of Learning
The world-renowned schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy are bringing their ideas and wildly successful approach to education to Seattle in an art show called The Wonder of Learning: The Hundred Languages of Children Exhibit.
From February 3 to May 6, One Convention Place downtown will be showing a visual representation of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and giving the public a chance to join in the conversation between educators, children, parents and the community, while getting a first hand look at the Reggio Emilia approach to education.
While experiencing the exhibit, visitors will take a deep dive into six thematic areas, including two hands-on ateliers. “Ray of Light” explores light and materials through the use of light tables, overhead projectors, white surfaces and different sources of light, and “Dialogues with Materials” offers the ability to create compositions and transform natural materials through crumbling, crushing, sifting and powdering.
The exhibit is comprised of works from Reggio Emilia children and adults and takes the form of visual, poetic, auditory and kinesthetic works. The exhibit may be viewed as individual works with a unique perspective and as a collective story, many individual threads that together weave a cohesive creative narrative.
Dates: February 3—May 6
Times: Thursday – Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday from 5 to 9 p.m.
Location: One Convention Place, 701 Pike Street, Floor 9
