The AP Art History class took a field trip to the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore in order to learn more about the ancient art work they were studying in class Oct. 21.

The class examines artwork from countries ranging from Greece to Mesopotamia to learn about their societies and culture. AP Art History teacher Leonard Dermont decided it was important for the class to go the museum, because, according to him, there are so many great art museums in this area.

“You get so much more out of seeing the work in person than in a textbook” Dermont said.
