Thursday, 15 December was our traditional French Class Luncheon. All 4 classes prepared hors d’oeuvres, plats principaux et desserts to share. C’était délicieux!
Then in January, the very first week back, French 2, 3 & 4 along with Mrs. Miers’ art classes visited the colorful Impressionist exhibit offered by William & Mary’s Muscarelle Museum. Docents took students and parents around on a guided tour, explaining the developments of this style of painting that represented a break with tradition. We learned that painting outdoors, color contrasts, personal impressions were among the shocking changes to the normal way of painting.
