Paintings. Sculptures. Art.

Nationals Art Honors Society is going to the Dallas Museum of Art on Tuesday. 

“Every year we like to do one big event for our members and it’s always art related because we are a national art club,” President of NAHS Sherry Hu said. “Going to the DMA is just something the students wanted to do to really increase art knowledge and expand on what you already know about art and to get inspiration for their own art.”

Students such as sophomore Sia Parpelli are looking forward to getting the experience of visiting an art museum in their own community.

“I’m excited because I’ve never been on a NAHS field trip before and it will be a new experience to see all the sculptures and art pieces at the DMA and really understand the reason behind the artist’s artwork,” Parpelli said.

For many of the artists attending this field trip, this is an opportunity for them to get inspired for future art pieces. 

“I think it will inspire me to be a better artist in general and use some of other artist’s techniques from their portraits that become so famous to inspire me in my paintings,” Parpelli said. “I hope to learn new styles of art and how artists create artwork in different ways.”

For other artists, this is an opportunity to relax and enjoy new works of art.

“It’s a good opportunity for us to get out of school with people like you and appreciate the same things as you,” sophomore Tanvi Desai said. “Especially towards the end of the year when AP season comes around and there are a lot of tests being crammed together it feels really nice to have one day of break where you can do something you love and also have the advantage of missing school.”

Hu believes this experience will increase artist’s awareness of the various forms of art around them and enrich them in the future.

“I hope that they gain a bit of art history knowledge just from walking around and looking at the paintings,” Hu said. “I also hope they gain a sense of appreciation for the art since it’s such a big part of our lives and it’s very enriching so I hope that’s something they carry in their lives for the future.”
