Art Tells a Story

The 8th grade's visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Tuesday was a wonderful exploration of themes met in cultural studies; through the study of paintings, furniture, and other decorative arts we were able to see the influence of ancient Greece and Egypt on design in the post-Revolutionary period and to understand how art helps tell the story of life at the time of the Constitution’s creation.

In December we look forward to exploring modern and contemporary American art as expressions of American values and concerns.
