The 8th Graders visited the deYoung Museum in November. They looked at the early American art collection, and then created their own art, inspired by some of the paintings they saw.
The 7th Graders created their own African Cultural Museum here at NDV for younger students in early January, so it was fun for them to explore the African art gallery at the deYoung a week later, and see some of the African masks and everyday objects that had inspired their exhibits.
The 6th Graders got to play the role of archaeologist, curator, and artist at the Legion of Honor last week. They investigated ancient artifacts from Greece and Mesopotamia, they drew their own images in the galleries, and they got to create their own exhibits of Egyptian art.
