Degas Exhibition

At the end of Term 3, 43 students and 10 adults made their way to the National Gallery of Victoria to see the Degas Exhibition. We left on the bus at 8am and after a bit of a swap around were on our way.

When we arrived we were taken to a media room and got to watch a video on Edgar Degas and his life. Our students were really interested and did a great job answering questions.

Then it was onto the exhibition. Although it was really busy we represented the school well and enjoyed looking at the artworks. One of the favourite was the sculpture of Marie the little ballerina. Other favourites included the Bellini Family portrait and the ballerinas and horses.

We were provided with a yummy lunch and then we headed to the workshop to produce our own artworks inspired by Degas. The students used torn paper to create colourful collages of people in action. There were all sorts of people from swimmers, dancers, basketballers and even a bull rider.

We headed home after a big day. We had a lot of fun and it was such a good experience. A big thanks to the NGV and their patron who provided us the opportunity to attend this wonderful exhibition. We  really enjoyed our day.
