High school art students share their work with fellow students every day in the “inspired” art gallery. Located in space near the front foyer known as the “fishbowl”, the gallery features various paintings, sculptures and textile pieces done by students who are enrolled in a variety of art classes.

Artwork is also displayed in two showcases in the front hall. But with the gallery, there is no limit to the size of the piece or the number of pieces that can be exhibited.

“We selected the name of our art gallery to reflect the fundamental mission of our department, which is to inspire our students. Our goal is to challenge them to think creatively, communicate visually and find a way to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas,” said Jennifer Hatfield, art teacher.
