We are fortunate to live in the Boston area and have a wonderful resource of local art museums. As discussed at the beginning of the year you are required to visit an art museum at least one time during this semester.
After students visit a museum they are always inspired, amazed and rave about the wonderful time that they had at the museum. So go and enjoy some art!
