Grauer Visual Arts Class Visits Oceanside Museum Of Art
From Johnny King, Visual Arts Teacher:
The 6th period High School Art class went out on a field trip to the Oceanside Museum of Art on Thursday September 9. It's always great to get inspired by other artists, and this trip allowed the students to see all sorts of artists working in all different types of mediums. The Oceanside Museum of Art cycles through different exhibits throughout the year, making sure to always have something fun on display for everyone!
