Visit to the Portland Museum of Art

It was the 2 and 3rd graders ' turn to go visit the Portland Museum of Art and eat at the Merry Table:

We were welcomed by guides speaking French and English. We saw some paintings of Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and many more. The guides told us about expressionism, cubism and pointillism during the art history.
We also saw paintings from Maine artists. The guides gaves us some  "magical frames" that had a little square cut in the middle. We looked at the paintings through the hole moving our arms back and forth.

At the end of our tour, we went to visit a very beautiful and big house that used to belong to a very wealthy family in Portland.

We ended the morning, by walking to the "Merry Table" to eat a very good meal: salad, ham and cheese crepes and sugar crepes!! un regal!!! Delicious!
Ensuite nous sommes allés à pied au restaurant crêperie « Merry table » pour déguster un bon repas : une salade de mesclun, une crêpe jambon-fromage et une crêpe sucrée. Un régal !
