A Brush with Art

Students will journey through four centuries of art from around the world touring numerous galleries within the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts. They will learn how apprentices used an egg to make paint in the Medieval Gallery. Touring the Impressionist gallery, students will act as the judges in a French Salon and choose which painting they would “hang on the line.” Listening to pieces of music from American composers, students will play a reverse game of musical chairs by matching musical selections and emotions to masterpieces in the museum’s collection. And discover the meaning of Trompe-l’œil and why these artists had a wonderful sense of humor.
