Niles West presents a collection of artworks on display “Virtually” featuring Visual Arts students who enrolled in AP Studio, 2-D and 3-D, Advanced Studio and 2-D Art, Art Foundations, Digital Photography 1 and Ceramics 1 courses during the first semester. The exhibition serves to document the success students achieved during “Virtual Learning” while navigating the many challenges hands-on courses posed. This amazing collection of artwork showcases the efforts put forth by both NWHS students and teachers during a very unique time in education. Visual Arts students didn’t let a Global Pandemic stop their creative passion. Please enjoy this virtual exhibition of drawings, paintings, functional pottery, sculptures, photographs, graphic design and much, much more!
