AP Studio Art and IB Visual Art classes are invited to go on a field trip to Chicago to visit the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art on Nov. 15.
“The goal of the trip is to get students exposed to art outside of the classroom,” Jonathan Kane, AP Studio Art and IB Visual Art teacher, said.
Kane said that the students will view American, European and Contemporary art. If there is extra time then personal interests may be viewed. Jay Renshaw, AP Studio Art student and junior, plans to go on the trip in November.
“I’m excited to go because I think it will be a good experience for everyone to see and share their thoughts about the art that we’ll see in the museum. It’s nice to get the opportunity to see it in person, instead of just pictures or copies.”
Kane said that while classical work is important and beneficial to study from, contemporary art is equally inspiring because the students in the class are contemporary and will be able to pull inspiration from it.
Students who plan to go on the trip should have already turned their bus fees into Kane on Nov. 3.
Kane said that he assumes the students who cannot go on the trip are unable due to scheduling.
“Students have a hard time fitting everything into their schedule. I can’t imagine why (a student) would not want to go on this trip with all their friends to Chicago.” By Rosemary Boeglin
