A Note From MRS L

I would just like to thank you all. My first Year with TREA has been amazing and I already can’t wait for next year!! You have some very passionate artists. It was a privilege to work with them.

We rounded out the year having some fun with the artist Alexander Calder.

We read “Sandy’s Circus” , and watched 1953 filmed clips of him on YouTube.com performing his mechanical circus for an audience.

Considered the inventor of the mobile he used his engineering education and skills to replicate a miniature circus out of found objects and traveled between New York and Paris in the 1920s performing. His mobile and wire work is amazing and the kids truly enjoyed watching the circus. I explained to them that kids didn’t have TV back then and that this was pretty exciting stuff.

I can’t wait to see you at our art exhibit!!!
