    Gregg Allan McGivern

    As a Multi-Disciplined artist, I am always exploring new forms of art. My latest pursuit is Pyrography. I find it to be quite challenging and satisfying as the technique is tactile and the aroma of burnt wood brings back childhood memories. I have always been fascinated with cityscapes and perspectives; this series explores the bird's eye view of combining these and creating original cityscapes. The Japanese word for this is Chōkanzu. Fixating on each piece causes vertigo and as a former parachutist, I want to jump into the scene. How do they make you feel?

    Often, the creative urge, once we express it, brings real relief in whatever form it takes. We have an inner sense that we can make what is into what we feel could and should be. –Fred “Mr.” Rogers
    In the ECE programs at the MNjcc, we believe that children learn immensely through creative expression. Their image of the world comes through all that they create through various mediums, materials and experience.
    Through this principle, the Toddler/Preschool/JK children have created masterpieces in this exhibit, showcasing their creativity through their image of the world.
    The children whose creations are exhibited, range in age from 15 months to 5 years. These creations were all based on their initial interests. Teachers observed and followed their lead!
