Ms. Berta's 3rd grade class were able to add to their art knowledge with the help of Mrs. Tucker, our Knollwood art teacher, and Tuan Nguyn, the Director of Education for the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis. Before the Skype session Mrs. Tucker introduced the students to the art of Wyatt Kahn.
The art museum has a collection of work by Wyatt Kahn, which was shared with the students. Mr. Kahn is a young artist from Brooklyn, NY who uses the human body and the senses as inspiration for his work. The artist's goal is for everyone to experience art all around themselves. He even made a puppet show of his art "talking" to explain it to his audience, like the movie Toy Story.
Mr. Nguyn shared lots of art pieces with the students, and when asked, "How do you know so much about art?" He shared his passion about art and that it can be interpreted and experienced in so many ways. The students loved hearing that there is "no wrong answer".
