Stuart High Student Completes National Gallery of Art Seminar

Eliza Snee, a student at Stuart High, has completed the 2016-17 National Gallery of Art High School Seminar, designed to introduce high school students from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area to art history, museology, and museum careers.  This competitive program accepts only 15-18 applicants each year.  Snee was sponsored by her art teacher, Katherine Wallestad, and was part of a group of advanced art students from 14 different high schools.  She studied the theme of the Virgin Annunciate through Time as seen in The Virgin Annunciate (1498-1503) by Giovanni di Domenico and The Virgin Annunciate (1325-1350) by Pisan 14th Century. Snee and her fellow students learned about museum careers through behind-the-scenes visits to a variety of museum departments, such as exhibition design, curatorial positions, and art education. The High School Seminar at the National Gallery is a ten-session program that runs from October to February. Students lead their families, friends, and teachers on thematic tours of the galleries at the program’s culminating event on February 25.
