Art classes are finishing up projects and will do ones that can be done in a class of two until the end of school.

There is a lot of artwork displayed in the hallways. You should come by and see it.

Before the end of school your child will bring home a lot of art work. There will be at least one piece that you may want to have framed. Seriously. It makes beautiful art for the home and your child will be so happy to see it displayed like a professional's.
