Art Students participated in a 16 hour day trip to experience two world famous art museums with a walk through central park in between visits. Six music students and their Band Director also joined us on the trip, spending the first half of the trip in a Jazz Clinic. The weather was beautiful and the exhibitions were very well showcased. It was wonderful to see students engaging in artistic discussions, taking photographs, and asking questions about not only art, but the city of New York in general. Many students had never been to NYC and every turn we took brought a new piece of information from food trucks and vendors, to castles and skylines. For seniors, this was their last trip with the Art Department and we hope they continue to pursue an arts education by being active creators and consumers of art no matter where they end up after graduation.
