Field Trip : National Gallery of Art

Hannah pondering a Jackson Pollock painting.

We were introduced to a copyist working on
Monet's, The Japanese Footbridge.

The students loved to see Alexander Calder's larger-than-life mobile moving very slowly through the air.

A review of the elements - line, shape and color.

The Matisse Cutouts. There are limited viewing hours for this exhibit to protect the pigments and paper. The lights are also kept down. I had never been there during viewing times.
Absolutely beautiful.

On our way back to the car, some of the girls found the skylights that look down on the tunnel between the buildings.

It was a fabulous tour. Our docent was a good friend. She knows exactly how to lead kindergartners through a museum.
There was magic at every turn.

Tommorow, I go on another exciting field trip with Hannah...
Here's a hint: it's big and white.
