RKYHS Studio Art and Video Production Classes Take Cross-Curricular Field Trip

The students from the RKYHS 11th and 12th grade studio art, advanced studio art, AP studio art and video production classes joined together for a cross-curricular, interdisciplinary field trip to the Short Hills Mall.

They spent time at the pop-up Van Gogh Museum temporarily housed in the mall where they learned about the life of Vincent Van Gogh. The exhibit has several reproductions of his work that were created as exact replicas via computer imaging. They were invited to touch the pieces, understanding the thick brush strokes characteristic of his style. The guides at the exhibit explained about his life, his work and his styles and historical information in Europe at the time and gave excellent insight to Van Gogh’s life.

Students also spent time at the Apple store where they were given a tutorial with the app called ProCreate, where they were able to create digital self portraits. They learned about layering images, tools to use and how to save images. Students were able to see each other’s work created on iPads the apple store had provided for their use. It was an enriching afternoon for the students.
