Art Trip

The MYP 3 and 4 students took a trip to see a valuable collection of works by two famous sculptors: Auguste Rodin and Alberto Giacometti.  Both of the artists have a museum dedicated to their work in Paris. The two museums came together to make a combined traveling show that highlights the similarities and differences in their work.  For the students, the most important element was to realize that the expression, imperfection, gesture and liberty found in the sculptures of Rodin and Giacometti influences how we work today.  MYP 3 will begin a Giacometti like expressive sculpture and MYP 4 have already begun very clever sketches for their expressive figurative sculptures.  We will hopefully enjoy seeing these pieces on display in the creative space at the end of term.
