Hello Hayhurst Parents!

Examples of art classes works inspired by Portland Arts Exhibitions

I wanted to make sure you were aware of some art exhibitions in town which have been topics of study in art classes this year:

>>> Grades 2 and 3 have learned about Leonardo Da Vinci (older grades will also learn about him). There is a great exhibition of his work currently at OMSI.

>>> Grades 4 and 5 have learned about the English street artist Banksy. There will be many examples of his work on display at a show entitled ‘Banksyland’.

>>> Fourth and fifth graders also learned about the artist Frida Kahlo at the beginning of the year. The younger grades will be learning about her, as well as Diego Rivera, in the near future.

Please keep in mind that children are free to attend the Portland Art Museum anytime. A free day for the entire family is scheduled for April 24. Please take a minute to check out the links in the attached PDF for more info. And, if you are able, please visit the exhibitions while they are in town to enhance the learning in art class!

Thank you, Mrs. Crawford
