West's Draw/Paint Students - Dream Art Contest

Our Draw/Paint students had a wonderful time exploring the theme - DREAM ART Contest!  They took aspects of the Civil Rights movement and incorporated some of these issues into what "our" America looks like today.  Their visual images are powerful!
I have included images from the thumbnail sketching, to the critiquing, to the Karz Productions folks visiting for the day, to the final pieces!  This is what the visual arts are all about - problem solving creatively through media in a safe and encouraging environment!
