Art Department hosts Chicago Field Trip

From March 6-8, the Fine Arts Department will be hosting a field trip to Chicago, Illinois.  The trip will feature different disciplines of the arts that appeal to the various classes that will be attending, including Photography, Drawing and Painting, Theatre, and Band.

The students will be accompanied by Performing Arts teacher Teresa De Zarn, Art teacher Willy Corbett, Percussion and Band director Keith Nance, and Ceramics and Architecture teacher Melissa Gaskins.

The idea for the trip came about during a Fine and Performing Arts Department meeting.

“We talked about the fact that in years past there had been group trips and threw around ideas,” De Zarn said. “We found that it was quite do-able.”

The itinerary for the weekend includes trips to the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Blue Man Group, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Willis Tower Skydeck. Students will also have the opportunity to attend a theatre workshop in conjunction with The Second City, a world-renowned improvisational comedy group.

Students enrolled in a Fine or Performing Arts class will be given the first open spots, but students not currently enrolled in an arts course at McNicholas are welcome to register.  Registration and an initial deposit of $150 are due October 15 in order to secure a spot.  More information can be found on the trip itinerary, which has been made available to students on Schoology.  Questions can also be directed to Ms. Mel Gaskins.
