Winslow Homer at the Portland Museum of Art and the crêperie

Last Tuesday, the 4th and 5th graders went to the museum to admire the fantastic exhibit called “Winslow Homer and Maine”, featuring many of his most acclaimed masterpieces such as “Weatherbeaten”. Nature in its wildest state is a theme we have been exploring for some time in art. The docent was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and the students had a great time learning about the artist’s life and techniques. After the exhibit, we went to have lunch at the crêperie…everything was delicious and we left with full stomachs and big smiles on our faces. What a great day it was!
