Nicholas Giordano's eighth grade classes from Grand Avenue Middle School embarked on a field trip to the Hofstra University Museum of Art to learn about Surrealism at the exhibit "Les Visionnaires, in the Modernist Spirit."

The drawings, prints, books, film and ceramics that the students viewed inspired them to create their own works of Surrealist art in the Museum's creativity lab. The Hofstra Museum's Educators invited the students to explore the avant garde art movement with hands on activities both in the Museum and in the classroom.

"The students were excited to see real artwork by such famous artists as Dali, Picasso, Ernst, Magritte, Cocteau and Duchamp among others we discussed in class," explained Giordano. "We will use the experience at the museum to create finished projects in the classroom."
