In conjunction with Federation CJA and the Chagall: Colour and Music exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, all Elementary students learned about the artist and created magnificent Chagall-inspired artwork as part of their French program. High School students in Grades 7, 8 and 11 did the same as part of their Visual Arts and Multimedia courses. Thank you to Elementary Director of French Studies and Academics Dr. Miriam Schrager, the Elementary French teachers, High School Visual Arts & Multimedia Teacher Chris Taylor and HS French Department Head Danielle Joseph for their creative work with the students.

Earlier this week, our students’ exquisite work was highlighted at both the MMFA and Federation CJA. Mazel Tov to the following students whose works of art were selected to be displayed:

Last night, the rest of the Elementary students’ work was exhibited in a first-class vernissage at Hebrew Academy, exhibited by Dr. Schrager and her exceptional team.

“Cette exposition fait partie du grand projet communautaire de Chagall à Montréal,” said Dr. Schrager.  “Étant donné que les travaux étaient magnifiques, nous avons décidé d’exposer toutes les oeuvres. Ceci complète les vernissages qui ont eu lieu au Musée de Beaux Arts et à la Fédération. Merci aux profs de français qui ont su tramsmettre cette passion pour Chagall à nos élèves.”

Kol Hakavod to our faculty and students!
