Alexis Darro’s Life Skills class at Crispell took a field trip to Storm King Art Center recently, giving them the opportunity to learn through a cultural experience.
This trip helped the students identify and enhance their feelings through art and bring in the social-emotional learning piece of education. They learned about shapes and forms in a more authentic way than geometry in math. They developed a richer vocabulary through the art, using more adjectives to describe things.
This trip showed them how art interacts with the environment and they interact with the art.
