Collège de Clagny

Back to cold and snowy after a lovely spring Saturday... A modern sculpture in the back yard of Clagny college. Collège is the first level of secondary education in the French educational system, usually entered at approximately age 10.

Retour au froid et à la neige après un samedi printanier. Sculpture moderne dans la cour du collège de Clagny.

These are wonderful! What a great display of art for the younger generations. :)

This would fit in at a museum! I loved the way you framed this...and very lucky children to be exposed to art so naturally.

I like it. The section in the upper right looks like a psychedelic signet ring.

C'est marrant, c'est juste le carré de mosaïque rouge au milieu qui attire l'oeil..

A nice detail.
Wow, France and her snow are in the news.

Reminds me of some rings I have seen.

That is a neat sculpture, it must stimulate creativity and imagination.

Nice sculpture...looks like beautiful jewels set in wood.

In many places in the states, we now have "middle schools" which contain grades 6-8. High school is 9-12. As a teacher I dislike middle schools. We used to have Junior High Schools, which had grades 9-12.

Sixth-graders (10 year olds) are still too immature to be in school with 7th and 8th graders.

That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it! ;)

Well, at least it was nice on a day when you could enjoy it, right? That art piece looks good for a school setting. Nice and colorful.

Love this sculpture. And no better place for it than a school where it can inspire young minds.

I LOVE IT. I'm not always a fan of contemporary art but this made me smile. I"m sure it makes the students smile as well.

I like the sculpture, many adults here would need a second round at secondary school...

A very interesting mosaic structure.

This art is pretty nice. It looks best when enlarged.

I agree with Jack Ciel, this looks so good when enlarged. It sounds so strange college at 10 yrs, here college is after high school.
