Individually We Are One Drop – Together We Are an Ocean
Klein Oak AP, IB, and advanced art and dance students collaborated together at the Museum of Fine Arts on Friday, September 13th. This field experience stemmed from a grant that was awarded a number of years ago and has been repeated with some adjustments to continue to meet the needs of the fine arts students.
William Forsythe, a groundbreaking choreographer, currently has four works on display at the MFAH which was the original impetus for Klein Oak dance teacher Fayla Curry. There is also an Iconic Fashion Photography exhibit as well, so two of Oak’s art teachers, Jennifer Schiebel and Melanie Leslie, were very interested in collaborating with dance so their students could also experience that special exhibit.
The first part of the day was spent in the Sculpture Garden across from the MFAH, providing the opportunity for IB Visual Art, Advanced Photography, and Advanced Drawing to work with Klein Oak’s Dance Company students. The dance company students worked through some compositional/improvisational exercises in class beforehand and used those for a site-based experience while being photographed and sketched by the art students. Students concluded the day at the MFAH touring their respective exhibits in smaller groups.
