Junior and senior classes at Queen of Peace High School recently took trips as part of the school’s “Arts Without Borders” fine arts enrichment program. Apart from the trips, the program includes preparation and integrative assignments as well as a post experience personal reflection.
The senior class journeyed to Millennium Park, where they viewed Yvonne Domenge’s sculptures in the Boeing Galleries. Seniors also received a docent-led tour at the cultural center, learning about the architecture of the building.
After the tours, seniors received a white graduation cap to craft a final “Arts Without Borders” assignment. They wrote on the caps with markers to recreate their favorite memories of the trip.
Juniors viewed the documentary “Miss Representation,” which focuses on the misrepresentation of women in the media and how this image has affected women in leadership positions.
After the documentary, juniors listened to the panel of various female leaders in the media and politics. Students asked the panel questions to see how issues brought up in the documentary affected the panelists in their careers. The afternoon concluded with small group discussions based on a media log and discussion questions the students received.
