Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) announces the release of the virtual edition of its beloved Explore More program. Explore More, typically offered in the gallery located in Reston Town Center, provides the opportunity for families to learn about artists and artworks featured in the organization’s exhibition programming. Each edition offers context into a specific exhibition accompanied by a digital gallery of artwork images. Kids and families will walk away learning more about art concepts, how to view art and art production! Designed with accessibility in mind, each activity is guided with easy direction and requires only a few materials that families likely already have on hand.
Explore More Home Edition is now available for free on the organization’s website with its first edition exploring the work of artist Moira Dryer in relation to the solo exhibition currently on view, Yours for the Asking. New activities will be released each month focused around new, exciting installation and exhibition projects.
More information will be announced soon about GRACE’s longstanding education programs: Emerging Visions, organized in partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) where art educators develop guided art curriculum to culminate into an exhibition of student artwork; and GRACE’s Summer Camp program produced in collaboration with Reston Association (RA) providing direct learning experiences centered around the visual arts led by professional arts educators.
