The group of students and their teachers traveled to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to explore several thousand years of art in the museum’s American Wing and Greek and Roman Art Gallery. 

Middle school art teacher Bruce Robbins said that the trip blended the work students have been doing in art class, where they have been working on landscape paintings inspired by The Hudson River School of Art, and Latin class, where they have been learning to decipher ancient inscriptions.
