Happy Holidays! Kindergarten Art Field Trip!

In addition to learning about self portraits and Frida Khalo, students had a field trip this week to Blackfish Gallery!

We were honored to speak to Palmarin Merges on our Wednesday field trip and Ellen Goldshmidt on our Thursday field trip! They are both working artists who are part of this wonderful co-op gallery in the Pearl District.

I was so proud of the students, who, though excited, were very respectful and asked amazing questions such as, “is there science involved in your art?” and “How should we look at your paintings? Is there an order (in which we should look at them)?”

My favorite question that came up both days was “When did you become an artist?” I’m sure that was a tough one (it would be for me) 😉
