Third graders from Waverly Park Elementary School recently visited the Nassau County Museum of Art to tour and view artwork up close, sparking inspiration for when they re-enter the classroom.
The students visit the museum three times a year with their art educators and teachers. This particular visit was a special one for third grade teacher Jackie Miller who marked her 100th time at the museum. She was honored with flowers, a crown and a badge commemorating her milestone visit. Teachers, students, art educators and the director of the museum all applauded her.
During the museum visits, students partake in exercises based on the art at the museum and learn all about the different artists and their work. For some students this yearly program is their only opportunity to see artwork up close and personal. Students will get to use this year’s theme of the four seasons for their next art project and bring their experience back into the classroom.
