8th grade Portfolio Showcase

After working hard all year on a variety of challenging units (Social Message Artwork, Independent Projects, and more), 8th grade students were given the opportunity to select and develop artwork based on portfolio criteria (defined: observational work or refining personal vision).  

End Goal: Art Show showcasing personal vision

Our big Art Showcase is coming up Wednesday, June 10th from 5:00-6:30 in the Great Room!
