EVSC students get creative during Fun Day at Evansville Museum

Posted: Updated:

Some EVSC students explored the Evansville Museum on Wednesday as part of Macy's Creative Fun Day. 

It was a day of firsts for many of the children, as they explored the Evansville Museum.

About a 100 special needs kids were there, and learned about art, dance and music. They rotated around six different stations so each child got to test everything out.

The Special Education Coordinator for EVSC Donna Robbins said it was about more than fun, though. She said the group of kids aren't exposed to the arts as often as others, so it was a great opportunity for them.

"They don't have the ability to go out and do some of these things. In school, they don't get to do some of these things. This is just a special event that we bring together. We can have lots of hands on, we can have lots of one-on-one attention, we can get them exposed to some of the arts that they would never get exposed to without this," Robbins said.

The students came from eight of EVSC's elementary schools. The event was made possible, in part, by a grant from Macy's.
