Burlington City Arts' cutest exhibition of the year, featuring artwork by 189 kindergarten, first- and second-grade students at the Integrated Arts Academy, opens this afternoon, May 22, at 4 p.m.

Under the supervision of BCA teaching artists Kim Desjardins, George Gonzalez and Gowri Savoor, who had teaching residencies at IAA this year, the kids created artwork in different mediums while exploring academic topics such as the solar system, weather, patterns and shapes using their art projects.

The event also celebrates the completion of the first year of Arts Connect, a partnership of more than 10 arts, education, government and nonprofit organizations that trains Vermont teaching artists — including Desjardins, Gonzalez and Savoor — in arts integration techniques and Universal Design for Learning.

The works on display include a mixed-media cloud mobile hanging from the ceiling, "stained glass" windows, solar system mobiles, clay relief tiles and an outer space-themed tile mural.
