Regents’ Museum of Art


Last Friday, Mrs. Lawrence joined Mrs. Terrell’s 4th grade class to explore the Regents’ Museum of Art (a.k.a. the fine art displayed in the halls of the school). The class discussed light, detail, expression, and various techniques to gain ideas for them to create their own artwork. After the 4th graders read E. L. Konigsburg’s story, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, which is about two kids who run away to live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Mrs. Lawrence drew a semi-identical museum from the bookcover’s artwork. Students then populated the museum with their own inspired pieces of both statues and paintings. The piece is still to be completed but will eventually be located in Mrs. Terrell’s class for all to admire.
