Maclay Visual Arts Participates In The Holocaust Remembrance Event On Campus (Getting Ready)

How can art help us remember the Holocaust? Check out this link: Art is meant to make you feel something. Think about that for just a second. This year on our campus is the first Holocaust Remembrance Day Showcase. The Maclay Visual Arts chose to participate by showing The Woman In Gold and discussing the Klimt paintings. Art class can be very laid back with lots of side conversations in the classroom. This is a great way to discuss many aspects of the Holocaust and relate it to art and eMpathy. Our overall theme for the Visual Arts this year was to work eMpathy into each of our lessons as best we could. See the link below to see our vision on eMpathy:

We will do several blog post over the next few days to share with you how we participated in this event on campus. Stay tuned for more information and visuals.

Upper School Art with Ms. Maurey created these Klimt inspired paintings to share at our COTA event and for the Holocaust Remembrance Show.
