Young Minds with Great Impressions

Jean Henning, Senior Museum Educator of the Nassau County Museum of Art, recently stopped by Deasy Elementary School to meet with students as part of the museum’s Visual Thinking Strategies program. Ms. Henning brought various paintings for the students to observe and identify the many elements of which they are comprised, including landscapes, buildings, people, animals, and other objects and shapes. The program is designed to develop visual thinking strategies in young children by engaging them in discussion about images, inspiring them to infer and share their opinions on what they see. Students will be making a trip to the museum this month as a follow-up.
