Key Concepts & Ideas

Educational Outreach Programming

To Practice Taking Root featuring artist Paloma Núñez-Regueiro
April 3 – September 8, 2023
Grades 2nd – 5th | 5 visits | 60 – 90 minute visits

Based on the work of artist Paloma Núñez-Regueiro, elementary students will draw inspiration from their family traditions and personal interests to create a printed portrait that honors both their backgrounds and future aspirations. Students will engage in narrative writing to communicate personal experiences and stories, while exploring ideas visually through a series of sketchbook prompts before creating their final piece. Artwork created during this program will be displayed around our communities in Saugatuck, Fennville, Holland over the summer. Opportunities to meet the artist on site!

Field Trips to the SCA

All Ages | Single visit to the SCA | 45 – 90 minutes

Bring your classroom to the SCA for a hands-on exploration of the work of Paloma Núñez-Regueiro. Students will draw inspiration from their family traditions and personal interests as they explore an age-appropriate gallery tour. An optional additional hands-on component with printmaking and narrative writing is available upon request.
