Visit at the Portland Museum of Art for the Art Books of Matisse
On Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, the students from grades 2-5 went to Portland to visit the current exhibit, the Art Books of Matisse. They had worked in class on some of the poems featured in the exhibit in class; the 4th and 5th grades memorized a famous poem by Mallarmé, Apparition.
The students explored the galleries with excellent docents who spoke French!
Last part of the exhibit was a wonderful game where the kids played placing items like Matisse did on his paintings!
