November means Museum Art Adventures!

For our first museum tour this new school year, we traveled to the Guggenheim Museum of Art!

Our Art Adventurers viewed the Guggenheim’s Artistic License & Basquiat exhibitions exploring lines, shapes and symbols, oh my!

 

It was all about abstract modern and contemporary art reviewing

our forms & sculptures with Giacometti;

 

geometric shapes, lines and patterns with Louise Nevelson; negative space, balance & color with Louise Bourgeois;

 

 

and finally, use of symbols, words and emotions with Basquiat.

Seeing ART then Making ART from Africa with “Indigo dye”, Patterns, & Silhouettes

Our Art Adventures continued exploring the art of Africa. It was all about textile art, patterns, and symbolism in the indigo dyed- resist cloth banners we viewed at the Met AND made in the classroom! Check out our 5-7’s project results along with their exploration in African Animal Silhouettes.
