Art appreciation

Paris has hundreds of wonderful museums. No surprise there. Some of my favorites are the smaller museums - especially the ones with gardens. I stopped by the Rodin Museum the other day. I didn't even go inside, preferring to enjoy the gardens and the beautiful day. Here is an example of the art on display outside:

The second graders were visiting the Rodin gardens too:

The fifth graders were drawing the sculpures at the Antoine Bourdelle Museum:

And ninth graders were outside the Beaubourg museum busily studying their class notes for the excursion of the day:

  1. I love all the gardens in Paris and this is one of my favorite. I loved how it was common for people to just sit and relax around the water and stay all day.
