Harrison Avenue Elementary School’s second and third grade students travelled to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to get a first hand view of the world famous artists they have been learning about in the classroom.

“The second grade had great connection with this trip,” said HAS art teacher Christine Vitarello.  “For example, students had been learning about the artist Alexander Calder in their science curriculum and seeing his mobiles was a terrific conclusion to their work on creating balance.  The students also remembered learning about Andy Warhol and Claude Monet from the art curriculum, so seeing their work was thrilling for students.”

The Harrison Avenue third grades also participated in interdisciplinary studies as well.  “The third graders have been learning about the Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali whose work was a very influential part of the 1920’s through World War II,” said Vitarello.  “As part of their art class, our students had created imaginary places for characters they had created.  It was a terrific educational connection to writing and history.”

“The students loved seeing Dali’s original work in the museum and of course they enjoyed experiencing the cut-outs by Henri Matisse and so many other fabulous artists.  It was an experience to be remembered by all.”
