Art Show Success!

The reception for our first student art show was such a success!! We had a wonderful group in attendance celebrating the over 50 student art pieces!! The art on display included pieces from our Art Roll Event, large printmaking projects, large-scale pop art pieces inspired by some of our students’ chairs, cherry blossom paintings, collage work, and some recent leaf printmaking projects.

Enjoy the pictures in this post and try to make time to visit the library to see the incredible work! Thank you for everyone who attended this event!! It was so wonderful to honor our students in this way!!

**UPDATE: The art show has been EXTENDED!! The art will be on display until after the Thanksgiving holiday!

Address: Mandarin Public Library, 3330 Kori Road, 32257
