Liberty students tour art museum for inspiration

liberty_art_museumTo go along with their study in class, Liberty Christian’s Middle and Upper School art students recently visited the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth for a docent-guided tour of the “Faces of Impressionism – Portraits from Musée d’Orsay.”

Many of the students have been assigned an impressionist artist to study for the year and have created a 3-D clay piece using their artist’s style, colors, and subject matter.

“By emulating a master artist, students will learn by doing, which I believe is the strongest form of learning,” said art teacher Shara Wright.

Students will each give a presentation at the end of the year on their artist.
