Ethan's field trip to the Ayala Museum proved to be highly educational for him. For the past month his kindergarten class has been studying "art". The topics ranged from the works of Van Gogh to Picasso and Seurat. My daughters were highly surprised by Ethan's knowledge as they don't even know who George Seurat is. Well, do you?

Anyway, the tour of the Museum was interactive. The school has made special arrangement with the museum and the tour guides had lectures and art materials for the kids to do abstracts patterned after Fernando Zobel's "syringe" medium and Arturo Luz's visuals. The tour also included 60 dioramas, re-telling Philippine History. The area was artfully lighted and fitted with emergency lights maybe in case of power failure. The tour guide had to look for us as Ethan and I got so caught up with the dioramas.The part I liked best was the collection of women paintings by Fernando Amorsolo. His "sunlight" painting has never ceased to impress me. The natural beauty of a Filipina has been the favorite subject of Amorsolo.

School field trips should always be educational. I just don't get it why there are schools that "do" field trips in malls.
