Museum of Art

A few weeks ago I got a note from Mattey's teacher asking if I could help chaperone a field trip.  I worked it out so I could go.  Mattey was thrilled because she never gets field trips and that I was going with her.  I was excited to go too. The trip was to a local Art Museum.  I haven't been there for over 2 decades so I was looking forward to looking around.

I got to school a few minutes before we were to leave.  We got on the bus and left. About a 1/4 of the way there the bus came to a rolling stop.  The bus died.  It did not want to restart.  We (me, a couple other moms, two teachers, and two classes) had to sit and wait for another bus to show up.  We waited about 10 minutes, but it seemed longer than that.  Thankfully it wasn't too bad.

Once we got to the museum we were taken on a very quick tour and then ushered upstairs to a studio for a hands on project.  (I wish I could have worked on a project too but I got a few good ideas for some media to work with.)  Mat sat at her table and worked hard on her abstract, mixed media art project.

I've decided we need to go back to the museum for a family trip because there was a lot we didn't get to see.
