The Metropolitan Museum or Art has a vast collection housed in three different locations. You could spend days in their Fifth Avenue flagship, but their Cloisters and Breuer locations offer a much smaller and more intimate experience.

Last week Walt Whitman students from the World Language Honor Society (WLHS) traveled into Manhattan to explore the amazing halls of the Metropolitan Museum or Art.

“We take the students to the museums as a way to expose them to the artists and artwork their language teachers discuss in their classes,” said WLHS Advisor Aileen Ms. D’Addario.  “This year we went to the permanent exhibits and focused on the Impressionist and the European artwork collections.”

The students were able to learn about the paintings and the different art styles of these famous painters. We hope that this brief exposure will make the students want to return and venture through more areas of this artistic landmark.
