Second Graders Inspired by Kandinsky and Braque at the Guggenheim

Saint David's new partnership with the Guggenheim for a Second Grade art unit is in full swing.

This week the boys started painting, after being inspired by Kandinsky and Braque artwork they viewed in the galleries.

Their teachers report that the boys are having a wonderful time viewing the art, asking questions about what they see, and then applying their learning in the art studio under the guidance of their Saint David's art teachers and a museum curator.

Our boys are so fortunate to be able to benefit from the expertise of their Saint David's art teachers, while taking advantage of enhanced learning opportunities offered by a world class cultural institution that is just down the block!
