Next we will be constructing sculptures answering the question:
“What is your favorite place on Earth?”
Each student in visual art will create a portfolio where they will organize their artwork throughout the class. Each portfolio will reflect their progress, creativity, craftsmanship, and effort and will be taken home at the end of the semester.
Students will have the opportunity to showcase their artwork in events around the school and in the community. Currently we are working on our annual Halloween Haunted House! Please check-back for more information!
