Art Gallery Exhibit Helps “Artists Communicate”

The Intermediate Art (10th grade) students had to think about something they wanted to communicate in their artwork. This could be a feeling, thought, educational, or a memory. Each student then made a plan to execute their work and decided what art media would be more beneficial to their idea. See a Photo Gallery of their artworks and visit the Art Gallery, read their artist statements, and see if they succeeded in communicating their vision!
