Edgar Degas at the Portland Museum of Art

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"
