First Baptist Day School is currently hosting an exhibit from Reggio Emilia, Italy, called “Mosaic of Marks, Words, and Materials.” This exhibit is a collection of works by young children in Reggio Emilia which call attention to the importance of mark making, or drawing, and storytelling. The exhibit will be in our school until early June. FBDS has recently hosted an initiative for educators to study the exhibit and participate in a hands-on experience with various drawing materials and supports. Part of our educational practice is for educators to experiment with materials that the children will be using. The FBDS educators have also participated in the atelier experience. When the church reopens, we invite you to come and visit the exhibit in the school.
