After working with many of these students for two and three years, it was very exciting to see the culmination of their art experience at SGS. This particular class had been craving the freedom to explore their own ideas since sixth grade, and it was exciting to see how they took advantage of the opportunity and developed such a wide range of individual expression. This year the worked ranged from abstract painting to sculpture, photography, fashion design, and mixed-media work, and there were stunning examples of video production and video art. Well done 8th graders!!!
