Grade 2 Studies Masks at the Met

Earlier this week second graders met with educators from the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a tour of Masks and Faces as it relates to their curriculum.

The boys have just begun their winter unit on Masks, inspired by cultures around the world.

Ultimately, they will create their own 3D mask made out of recycled materials they have collected, using papier-mâché and paint.
 
At the end of their tour, they were given time to sketch out a work of art at the museum, which they then brought back to class to use as inspiration.

We are so fortunate to be a short walk from many important cultural institutions such as the Met, easily enabling our boys to enhance their learning through collaborations with these outside organizations.
