Museum Visit Inspires Art Students

A group of Dominican’s National Art Honor Society members attended an Art Experience at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art where they met with Isidore Newman School students in the Advanced Placement Studio Art class and their teacher. The students engaged with Museum Educator Ellen Balkin, who led a tour of the museum, focusing on three pieces of artwork. Students were encouraged to brainstorm ideas for a finished piece inspired by these three artworks, and sketched ideas during their museum visit. In the spring semester, the students will return with a finished work to participate in a critique.
