Holy Family School receives grant to teach humanities

NORWICH – Holy Family School of Norwich has been selected as one of 1,500 pilot schools in the country to receive a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to teach history and humanities through American classical art.



The program, Picturing America, is an innovative classroom project made available by the NEA in cooperation with the American Library Association. It is composed of 40, carefully selected works of art spanning several centuries - all by American painters, sculptors, photographers and architects. Large, high-quality reproductions of these images, along with a teacher’s resource book, lesson plans and materials, and access to an online, interactive website were distributed to schools and libraries nationwide.
