Analysis and Rhetoric at NBS Lectures on Art
Congratulations to winner Teddy W., who spoke on Picasso's Three Musicians and to his fellow finalists: Jamie A., Ben D., Nick N, Sean O., and Charlie U. All should be proud of their accomplishments.
The NBS Lectures competition is the first of four summary projects that our eighth graders complete as part of their interdisciplinary humanities course. The course is a signature one at Saint David's in which boys refine the art of clear, concise, cogent writing and speaking, in a program that blends art, analysis, rhetoric, history, and writing.
