Sculpture Art is taking over the Library! Advanced Art Students created a variety of unique and colorful sculpture projects using clay, plastic, acrylic paint, and spray paint. “Sculpture is a challenging art form to create because it forces the student artist to move from a flat, two-dimensional creation process to considering the artwork from all sides,” Mrs. Witkowski.

Highlights from the display include a variety of ceramic candle holders with unique designs, glazed with bright colors and abstract plastic sculptures that represent an emotion through the elements of shape and color.
