Little Learning Warriors in the afterschool program at Kelly School took part in creative projects at the Frick!

In one of the Frick’s school programs, students are challenged to use deductive reasoning, visual literacy and critical thinking skills as they experience the site.  “Why is the queen in the painting without a crown? How did you charge an electric car in 1902?  What would it take to get a house ready for a visit from President Teddy Roosevelt?  And what in the world is an orchestrion?” Whether making art in our studio, examining banana trees and cactus in the greenhouse, struggling to fasten shoes with a buttonhook or figuring out how to start a Model T, students will gain new perspectives as they interact with art and history through engaging, hands-on discovery.
