This year the theme is The Art of Metaphor. Students submitted paintings, sketches, sculptures, ceramics, mixed media and photography inspired from this theme, creating a colorful palette of interpretations.

It was awesome to see so many students and teachers recognized this weekend and we look forward to hosting the exhibition for the duration of the month!
