About Marc Chagall (1887-1985)

Marc Chagall was a Russian-born artist who is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Born in 1887, he was a pioneer of modernism and blended elements of his Russian-Jewish heritage with contemporary European art movements. Chagall's works were characterized by their dreamlike quality, vivid color, and imaginative subject matter, which often included biblical and folk themes.

He was also a master of various mediums, including painting, printmaking, and stained glass. Chagall's work had a significant impact on the development of modern art and he remains one of the most celebrated artists of his time. Today, his works can be found in major museums and private collections around the world and continue to be admired for their imaginative and timeless quality.

I love MTM because it provides our kids with otherwise unavailable or limited art exposure. It gives them a chance to create and be inspired by amazing artists from different times in history, as well as within different mediums. Being a coordinator for MTM allows me the privilege of providing inspiration and creativity to kids just starting out on their educational journey- they never cease to amaze me with what they are able to express!
