Art class at MHHS Experiential Learning Week

Saylor LaGrandeur re-imagines a Van Gogh
Toni  Lucas

Students from Matthew Halton High School (MHHS) took part in Experiential Learning Week (ELW) from Monday, October 19 - 23. The students took a single immersive class in a option of their choice that they were then enrolled in for the duration of the week.

Toni Lucas - In art class on of the projects the students took on included finding a famous peice of art they admired and recreating it with some changes.  Saylor LaGrandeur chose Van Gogh's  'Bedroom in Arles'.  Instead of pitcher and basin on the table she depicted a more modern item - earphones,  Definitely a much more modern and individual take on the famed one-point-perspective piece.

Fall 2015 ELW programs and activities included:  Sewing, Ultimate Frisbee, Butcher, Edible Gifts, Film Study, Animal Care, Drama, Basketball/ Volleyball, Hockey, Junk Yard Wars, Outdoor Survival, Knife Forging, Painting/ Drawing, and Photography.
