Making a Grey Day Colorful
Posted by jvartlady on March 9, 2011
One way to brighten your day is to look at a lot of color. That is what 56 third graders did with their amazing and knowledgeable classroom teachers and some creative minded parent chaperones!
All the way to Richmond, our state capitol to see the one, the only, PICASSO!
Check out the Picasso link below to view the on line exhibition that all third grade will be talking about for a long time.
We were so lucky to fit in two different tours in one trip.
The VMFA has the best docents and two of the best brought Greece and Rome to life for our students, showing us more than 25 ancient and antique art and artifacts from those cultures. We saw four seasons of mosaics from Pompeii, Greek urns with a wedding story turned bad, heroes and villians and of course the columns!
With weather threatening we ate slowly and hungrily back to Jackson-Via with a brain full of new images and ideas and hungry to learn even more!
We have so much to be thankful for here in Virginia and especially at Jackson-Via. Wonderful, creative children whose enthusiasm is igniting my energy with plans for a return to the new Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for more “real, live” learning.
Keep your eye on the arts!
