As always, feel free to contact program advisors Robin, John, and Emma and associate directors Stephanie and Laurie if you have any questions.

New Orleans Museum of Art

We had a great time visiting NOMA with some of our seniors last week. We loved the special exhibits, especially A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes

After touring the museum we walked around the sculpture garden and ate lunch in City Park. It turned out to be a gorgeous day!

Did you know that NOMA admission is FREE for Louisiana residents on Wednesdays and free EVERY DAY for teenagers?! Go check it out and let us know what you think!

Art Day: Hat Making with Peri Levine

WOW look at these amazing hats! We had a blast creating art and fashion with you all last weekend. And a big thank you to Peri Levine (pictured in center) for teaching us about your designs. For anyone who missed it, Peri started her own business selling her hats in high school, and went on to receive a full-ride scholarship to Tulane. Looking forward to more hat making in the near future!

Happy Holidays!

We had a great time celebrating the end of fall semester and 2017 with you all on Saturday. You are all STARS!
