The Ratner School Art Program
I have enjoyed hearing the students tell me about the adventures and travels they experienced over spring break. Everyone seems rested and glad to be back to school. With the exception of the Kindergarten class, all the students had one class with our partner at MOCA, Nicole Ledinek. She came to the school to talk to the students about the art they would experience during our upcoming field trips next week. The classes analyzed a piece of art for one minute and then discussed what they observed. Each class had a different impression of the same piece and it was a valuable process for the students to participate. The 3rd,4th,7th and 8th grade students will visit MOCA Tuesday, April 12th and the 1st,2nd,5th and 6th grade will visit Thursday, April 14th. This visit will conclude this years partnership with MOCA. I have found the partnership to be a wonderful and valuable addition to the art program at our school and look forward to continuing the relationship next year. Thank you all for your support of this partnership.
