Alexander Calder at Dominique Levy Gallery!

We took an art adventure to the Dominique Levy Gallery this past week! Students learned all about the work of artist Alexander Calder and created their version of his stabiles. Even parents joined us in learning all about the stabiles, mobiles and balance! Check it out!

Cubism Comes to Class

After an exciting venture into the Met. Museum last month to see the Lauder Collection, and with the guidance of Braque, Picasso and visiting artist Banks Clayton, 4 of our students quickly broke free from traditional reperesentational painting of an object to gain a deeper understanding of Cubist techniques: fracturing planes, using multiple views and exploring values.  Through these marvelously crafted pieces, Mr. Clayton was able to open the gates of understanding of Cubism- all with fun and finesse!
