Take a moment and look at the above AHoM you are currently working on. Write out two things that you see as connections in your choice of AHoM and how you are proceeding with your work?

 

Studio Art 360: Sculpture Wrap up – FRIDAY!

One day off  – Moving forward with the sculpture – How are you working as a team?

What needs doing? Passes? Come in to finish? Take home? 

AP Studio Art: Jim Dine and PLANTS!

Not knowing what your thoughts are about plants / flowers, know that they have been and will be a large and important image in art. Working to make sure you have a REAL connection with the images you make, what are your personal connections to the art or the making of the art?

#SPARK day at #WUHS_Activities#Sophomores are with@youthfrontiers talking #RESPECT

Youth Frontiers came to speak with the WUHS Sophomores about RESPECT. What a GREAT day to see the kids learning, reflecting, experiencing, and getting to know one another and about the idea of respect. Thanks to Andrew and Preston for bringing the love and lessons.

All our images from the day can be seen HERE!
