On Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Primary children will visit the Princeton Art Museum. The purpose of the trip is three-fold: to expose the children to real art, to teach them art museum etiquette, and to inspire their creativity.
On this day, students will depart from school at 9:30 am and arrive back to school at 11:15 am. They will have lunch upon their return.
We will not be visiting the gift shop. Please do not send money with your child. The trip will take place rain or shine. If it is raining, the children will need raincoats; please do not bring umbrellas.
What to bring/wear:
- Wear comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops)
- Wear raincoats as needed (no umbrellas)
Please submit your permission by Monday, July 23rd.

One of the best ways to understand and appreciate a culture is by seeing and understanding its art. Cultural art can be based on geography or history and of course the ways of the people. Our young artists are gaining a better knowledge of how history and culture can influence the visual art of the time and they are experiencing varied media, techniques, and processes related to this work.
These artworks include examples of African Art and Native American Art.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
