Thank You Parents Network and Wrentham Cultural Council!!

Once again our incredible community has shown their support for the Arts!! Both the Parents Network and Wrentham Cultural Council have generously awarded us grants allowing NAHS students to attend a fantastic field trip to the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.

Thank you Wrentham Cultural Council

The Fine Arts Department would like to thank the Wrentham Cultural Council for awarding us a generous grant that allowed us to take a wonderful field trip and bring our student artists to the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. We enjoyed a lovely spring day on the waterfront and the exhibits in the museum were absolutely spectacular! It was really special for us to see the work of current artists who are alive and well and working in the field today. We were each is some way moved; intrigued, humbled, entertained, excited, and/or inspired by the work we saw and the interactive installations we experienced. Thank you from all of us!!
