Visual Arts Boosters Trek to VMFA

Over 65 students, families and friends attended the 2011 Art Trek to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday, February 5. After lunch together in BEST CafĂ©, students toured the museum with teen docents, led by MLWGS’s Jack Miller (2011) and three other guides. The adults toured the collections and explored the theme The Psychological Moment, led by Mary Therese Grund, VMFA docent. After the tour, the group went across Grove Avenue to the VMFA Studio School to meet VAB Board Members and Studio School teachers Ann Chenoweth and Joan Elliott, who shared the Studio School art show True Blue and refreshments. Then, Ann Chenoweth took the group to the Printmaking Studio for a fascinating hands-on talk about various types of printmaking--using her work and that of her colleagues, to illustrate. All in all, a wonderful day of art!  Click here to see more photos from the event.
