At our VMFA today, GMS Art Honors students had a great time visiting the wonderful exhibits! We also told and heard stories about the paintings , and did some sketching of our own! We have read all about the current VMFA Exhibit entitled “The Art of the Flower”, and it is an inspiration for our current still life project as many of the students have chosen to realistically draw floral arrangements! We hope many of our students will be able to see the wonderful samples of Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse and Manet to name a few! Sadly our trip to VMFA did not allow enough time for viewing this art, but we hope to inspire our young artists to return with their families! For sure, after trying to draw flowers our selves, we have an even greater respect for the work of the masters! AND, We did see Van Gogh & Marilyn Monroe !
