Artistic Journeys Gains Insight from Christie’s Expert

aj

Recently, the students in the Stanley Isaacs Artistic Journeys program were joined for a lesson by Carleigh Queenth of Christie’s. Queenth, who is the Head of European Ceramics and Glass for the auction house introduced students to the concept of Decorative Arts, focusing specifically on the Porcelain category.

During the lesson, they shared various forms, decorations, movements, and uses of porcelain across time periods and regions, using examples from Christie’s collections as well as printouts from the internet.

After the presentation, the children created their own designs which were showcased this spring.

Artistic Journeys, one of two committees under the Stanley Isaacs umbrella, introduces children between the ages of 7 – 9 to a variety of creative arts and crafts projects. Children participate in artistic activities, gaining confidence and self-esteem through the process. The committee also arranges field trips to city museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Children’s Museum, and the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
