RFIS Virtual Art Gallery

Artwork from students at Reading-Fleming Intermediate School is now on display in the RFIS Virtual Spring Art Show. Please take a moment to check out masterpieces created by our talented students, including paintings, drawings, optical illusions, mixed media, sewing, weaving, animation, photography, origami, digital art and more! The students have worked very hard to develop creative projects using materials they had at home this trimester. Be sure to scroll through each category to see the various pieces in the gallery. Bravo, RFIS!
