NYC Fine Arts Trip

Students in the art and theatre classes, escorted by their teachers, visited New York City for a fine arts appreciation trip March 6-9 and stayed in the Hilton Midtown in Manhattan. To learn more about artists, art history and different styles of art, the group visited the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as the Met Breur for the exhibit of Gerhard Richter who is considered to be one of the world’s most important living artists. In addition, students visited the The Armory Show, New York City’s premier art fair featuring the world’s most important artwork from the 20th and 21st centuries. For the experience of live theatre, students attended one of the following Broadway shows in the Theatre District: The Lion King, Mean Girls, or Wicked. Expanding their theatre experience, students and chaperons participated in a private improvisational acting class held in a studio in Hell’s Kitchen. The trip provided the opportunity for students to experience the culture of New York City as they walked through Central Park, shopped in SoHo, dined in Times Square, and ice skated at Rockefeller Plaza. Mrs. Ashley Lareau, Art Department Chair, organized the trip and she was assisted in chaperoning by Mr. George Carruth, theatre teacher, and Mrs. Tara Schumacher, an art teacher. Mrs. Susan Barfield, Mr. Sean Hoskins and Mrs. Cheryl Landstrom also went on the trip.
