GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - Maranda talks with Angela, the Educational Director of ArtPrize, about all the great opportunities for kids this year. An ArtPrize insight from Angela is to get your kids involved with ArtStart. It's a competition designed for kids 18 and younger. Go to www.artprize.org/visit/educators/details to fill out an application and start creating your entry! Any media is allowed, whether creative writing, graphic novel, photography, video, or illustrations is what your child loves. Kids can win cool prizes and the winners will be announced with the top ArtPrize entries.
Maranda then takes a trip to Van Andel Arena where kids get a special lesson from the Ringling Brothers Circus. They learn the art of "clowning", a huge part of what makes the Ringling Circus "The greatest show on earth". Kids got to see the magic up close, along with elephants, the traditional art of clowning, and even got a lesson in clown makeup!
Students at Forest Hills Central have worked together for years to raise money for Van Andel Institute.
Gail keeps you in the know on what is going on in the latest family law issue of whether a father can gain custody over a fetus and therefore limit the liberty of the mom before the baby is born.
