A Note from Jacquie Bryant
Ms. Denis' 6th grade Art classes and parent chaperones visited LACMA on Monday. The class spent Tuesday reflecting on a what the benefit of a field trip experience is. They specifically discussed "What makes something art?" in response to some tour guide redirection that students didn't understand around the Levitated Mass installation. The reflective conversations in class are helpful so students process what to expect and what is expected of them. Unfortunately, we have two students who will not be able to attend the next field trip because they didn't respond to multiple redirections. Our students are always learning from processing these experiences. Much appreciation to Ms. Denis' planning and the support of chaperones, tour guides, and the LACMA for helping our art students to connect concepts learned and practiced in class with the museum. And especially a great thanks to parents for your PTSA membership that pays for our field trips!
