Art Expedition

Art students visited the Bowdoin College Museum of Art to view a comprehensive exhibit dedicated to the work of legendary artist, Edward Hopper who produced many paintings in Maine between 1914-1929.  Hopper summered in Maine nine times, painting and sketching in Ogunquit, Monhegan, Rockland, Cape Elizabeth, and Portland.  Viewing this collection of 90 paintings afforded Mt. Ararat students the opportunity to better understand the work of Hopper, the techniques he used, and Maine’s cultural history during this time period.  The museum trip was organized by Mt. Ararat art teachers, Sheila Bohlin, Zachary Fields, Sarah Cowperthwaite, and Cooper Dragonette.
