I took 47 middle school students to the OKC Art Festival & a Dale Chihuly exhibit today. Most had never been to an art museum, (Several had never been in downtown OKC). The best part was watching the kids at the festival food court. One boy had his first Tandoori (loved it), several had their first Italian Ices (one even got Mango, I was proud) and lots were in line at the Greek & Chinese tents.
I still vividly remember my first sushi & first shishkebab at this festival 20 years ago, so we started at the food.
47 kids and no real behavior problems. a good day. On the bus they talked about the food, not the art.
