Clay Art Show 2022

Clay 8-12 art students worked hard this year experimenting with different art materials and art styles all while finding their own personal journeys within their artwork. The Picasso quote, "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life," was used in this year's show because life can give us ups and downs, but art can give us a new look at life.

Please enjoy this year's Clay Jr/Sr High School Virtual Night of the Arts 2021-2022.
