12/13/18 - Field Trip : Contemporary Art Museum
Today, KIS students went on a field trip to the Contemporary Art Museum in downtown Kumamoto as part of our TDL theme on different media. Students viewed the exhibit いろんなじじょう which explores the connection between colors and emotions, which is one of the central themes of our current inquiry. Additionally, students got a behind-the-scenes view of the inner workings of the art museum when they were given a tour by the staff; students learned about where and how works of art in the museum’s care are stored. Before returning to KIS, students and teachers enjoyed lunch in the Tsuruya department store. All students had a great time learning about art and further drawing connections between various media.
