Our art teacher, Mrs. Halstead, organized a wonderful field trip to the Memorial Art Gallery for the first grade classes. The children were given tours of the gallery by museum docents. We saw portraits, landscapes, sculptures, pen and ink drawings and much more!
The children were terrific! They were good listeners, were very well behaved, and asked thoughtful questions about the art. Ask your child which piece of art he/she liked best.
We would like to send a special thanks to Mrs. Halstead, the museum docents, and to Mrs. Jacobs and Mrs. Wyszomirski, who chaperoned our field trip.
(The museum does not allow flash photography so the quality of our pictures was affected.)
