Spanish IV classes took a trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum on March 18. This field trip was due to the fact that the students had just finished a project on Spanish artists.

“It was a really cool experience to see all the art we have been studying and to learn a lot more about it,” said Madeleine Driscoll, 10.

The students spent an hour on a guided tour of the Spanish art in groups of ten and an hour walking around the museum.

“The field trip was a fun way to learn about Spanish and Latin American history through art. It was also, a great way to see actual paintings that my artists had done,” said Max Weiss, 10.

During the guided tour one of the collections, the Spanish Masters collection, was delivered to them in Spanish. This allowed the students to practice their listening skills.
The Spanish Masters collection involved work from Francisco Goya, one of the artists the class studied.
“I really enjoyed the whole trip but it was really cool to see some of the work of our artists in person,” said Maggie Pustinger, 10
