The History of ArtPosted: February 15, 2012
On Monday our class discussed “What is Art?” and we looked at a variety of pieces (classical – up through modern interpretations). We learned about art….different themes, styles, and artists. We also tried to create our own by practicing with horizontal lines using watercolor.

And Miss Bowser stopped by for some watercolor time…
On Tuesday we went to the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.!
- Morning was spent with our fabulous docent where we looked more modern art, such as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollack, Lichtenstein, Sol Lewitt, and Motherwell
- Fabulous Lunch
- Afternoon: Free time to look at more of the modern artwork – grown ups looked at old school stuff (Renaissance) because that is what grown ups do
