The quest then begins. Many of the seventh and eighth graders of Julian Junior High are currently asking themselves that very question. On March 23rd students from Julian Junior High were introduced to the artwork of Leonardo ad Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, and many other European renaissance masters. The students traveled from the small town of Julian to be exposed, many for the first time, to a world that transcended their experiences and displayed to them a place not only different in geography, but in history. Professional docents guided our Julian Junior High stbdents through the medieval world of Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, Leonardo de Vinci, and other Renaissance artists. Students witnessed first hand many of the great works of art produced by man in the form of sculpture, painting, and the medieval legacy of illustrated manuscripts. The docents pointed out that "art history" is presented without the use of mathematical calculations, dates on a calendar, or even letters from an alphabet.

The Parent Teacher Organization, along with the Julian Union School District, provided funding for transportation to the J. Paul Getty Museum in Northern Los Angeles for he 80 students and 20 adult chaperones. The Getty Museum in northern Los Angeles is considered by many as one of the finer collections of medieval art on the west coast of the United States. It sits on a 110-acre site, surrounded by 600 acres of preserved open space, overlooking downtown Los Angeles. The architectural Stahl take a guided sketching design of the facility echoes older villas built on the hillsides during the Italian Renaissance. The gardens and fountains of the Getty are world-renowned. Financed from a trust started by John Paul Getty of the Getty Oil fortune, the museum and its surrounding gardens attract approximately 1.3 million visitors a year. On the day of the Julian Junior High visit the museum was opening an exhibit of Leonardo de Vinci works. Students marveled at the master's sketches, inventions and were reminded of his philosophy of poetry and painting: "Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."
