BHS French, Art Students Take on the Windy City


By: Joseph Spirk

On October 15, Bellbrook High School French and Art students went on an academic field trip to the Art Institute of Chicago for a day trip. This was the 10th year the French and art students have gone on the trip together. They began in 2002, while not going some years.

Departing from the high school at 7 am, they arrived at the museum at noon and began their tour in the Impressionist wing and then dispersed throughout the museum.

The French students were led by their teacher, Ms. Jergens, who gave her students a presentation of the different pieces of art associated with French Impressionism, while the art students were led by art teachers, Mrs. Fogarty and Mrs. Hensley, who took their students on a separate extensive tour of the different galleries.

Later that afternoon, after visiting the museum the groups joined together and departed for Navy Pier where they would be able to dine, shop, and relax by Lake Michigan.
