Mrs. Teresa Sengel, World Language Department Chair, reported, "On Wednesday, February 15, famous Italian artists Botticelli, Raffaele, Caravaggio, Cimabue, Modigliani, Severino, Tiziano, and several others spoke about their famous Renaissance and Futuristic artworks. Only, these are Mount AP students who 'became' these artists in a simulated museum in their classroom. The Italian students demonstrated their high-level skills by becoming the artist, and answering questions about their life and works of art. The other students were museum patrons, and then switched places."
She added, "While Italian artists discussed their artwork, down the hall, Spanish cooks demonstrated in Spanish how to make various types of dishes from different Hispanic cultures in 'La cocina de la Clase Espanol AP.' Students were also able to enjoy these delectable dishes, which were all prepared by their classmates."
