HES 5th Graders at the National Gallery

I was happy to hear that many of our students and chaperones braved the wind and cold on Thursday in Washington to walk up the Mall to the West Building of the National Gallery of Art.  Assuming they followed the brief tour I outlined for them (and didn't get too distracted by all the other magnificent art around them), they were able to glimpse works by Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh, and several others.  Many of the works and artists have been specifically studied in the HES Art Room this year or in past grades, so I hope the tour had some special significance for the students.
