Fashion and Customes in Art

Sharon spent part of the afternoon serving as the Art Docent for Jack's first grade class. The lesson looked at how different the clothes that people wore several hundred years ago are from the clothes we wear today and the types of costumes worn by artists' models and during times of celebration.

The class learned about three artists and their paintings: Jan Vermeer and The Milkmaid [shown below]; Mary Cassatt and Woman with Dog, and; Pablo Picasso and The Artists' Son.

Sharon also talked to the class about Mardi Gras. For their art project, the class decorated masks for Mardi Gras.
