Students from 10th and 11th grade enjoyed this major retrospective of Chicago artist Marshall, and of course the escape from school on a sunny spring day! The 2-hour bus ride to downtown was not fun, but experiencing such thought-provoking art with peers is always a treat. Chaperones had a relaxing lunch at the Grand Central Market, and all hope the Angels’ Flight gets back in service soon: that’s a steep hill back up to meet the bus!!

Fall means floats, and Art Club created another winning entry in the Homecoming competition. Theme this year was amusement park rides, and the Club’s Alice in Wonderland designs were terrific, from painted backgrounds and props to colorful costumes. Enthusiasm builds over the two weeks of long hours required to build such a masterpiece, and teachers provide support and a cheering section for these talented students. Go Art Club!!
In October, AOAT Seniors enjoyed a trip to Little Tokyo to tour the Geffen branch of MOCA, and had the added treat of a “curated” walk around the area’s blossoming street art scene, narrated by Ms. Prato. Students enjoyed the time with each other in an exciting part of our city, and teachers and volunteer chaperones got to relax away from the stresses of regular school days: a win-win!
