Art from each grade, starting with 6th, will be presented throughout the high school for parents and family to come and enjoy.  Caroline Epp, who teaches art, photography, and printmaking, uses her own time to tack and staple all of the children’s best works of art to display boards. Below is the schedule for the variety of art shows in the next few weeks:

4/11 – 4/15         6th grade

4/25 – 4/29         7th grade

5/2 – 5/6              8th grade

5/9 – 5/13            Photography

5/16 – 5/20         Ceramics, Printmaking, & Graphic design

5/23 – 5/27         Art foundations, Drawing, Painting, Portfolio, & AP Art

5/31 – 6/10         Senior advanced student showcase

In previous years the art shows were one big, combined show located in the gym of the old school. This was possible because the art department had a large amount of standing cardboard used to display art on both sides. Unfortunately, the cardboard was damaged on its way over to the new school. Soon after this dilemma occurred, there was a large donation of cardboard; Last year the it was used to display all of the art in one single show. Once again, the cardboard became unusable, so the National Art Honor Society created beautiful new tack boards to display the art. Epp says that in the future, she would like to return to how the art shows were put on in the past.
