Art Exposed Goes Virtual

 

The Art Department is so thrilled to be able to produce a virtual Art Exposed this year. We understand it is not the same experience as viewing the work in person but it is our hope you will still be able to appreciate our very talented students in their art-making skills. We are saddened to say we were not able to represent all students and some amazing works of art because of the lack of images that were available. We would also like to thank the Shaker Schools Foundation for all their support in making this event possible.
