Last Thursday, the 4th, 5th and 6th graders went to the Portland Museum of Art, to discover the remarkable exhibit on the famous of French impressionist Edgar Degas, entitled « Edgar Degas: the private impressionist ». The exhibit presented a large collection of sketches, prints and etching by the painter, as well as other artists of this era (ie: Toulouse-Lautrec, Manet…) .
The students admired the different techniques and media used by Degas.
After the visit, students enjoyed crêpes at the Merry Table Crêperie! The owner had prepared a special menu "en français": salade verte, crêpe jambon/fromage and for dessert, the delicious crêpe au sucre.
Everyone had a great time ! The perfect way to enjoy "La semaine de la francophonie"
