Here is a video on how the 2nd Floor Gallery and the Artist in Residence Program has been received by our staff and students.
The Art Foundations 2 and Senior Art 2 students created a series of drawing/paintings using a single line, color, pattern, and value. Students were to explore a defined space with their pencil resulting in various organic shapes filled with color, pattern, and design. Below are the final results of this project.
All drawings are 11″x14″, colored pencil and paint on paper, 2015.
Mr. Miller always finds ways to incorporate art into the programming of the Hmong Leadership Council. Below is a great example of what transpired during a spring formal at North High School. Thank you for sharing, Mr. Miller.
A note from Mr. Miller, Hmong Leadership Council advisor
I thought you might like to see some of the art from our spring formal: Bangkok fading into a lotus lagoon, bamboo, and a lake by the jungle. Senior, Savannah B. was the lead artist and important contributions were made by Paris H (’14) and Sophomore, Lilly K. About 30-40 students worked on the murals. I finally confronted my blending phobia and am proud of what I was able to do with Paris on the water and beach areas!
Thanks for always letting me share this work with you.

The last couple weeks have been busy with many projects! Sara gave a presentation on 1970’s poster design to four of Carrie McGoldrick’s history classes and then worked with them to create their own posters depicting important issues in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Many students recreated specific design styles that emerged in the 70’s and focused on topics like civil rights and the Vietnam War. Check out the creative posters they made below!
Sara is also part of the two person exhibition currently up at The Frank Juarez Gallery, open on Saturdays from 10am – 4pm or by appointment. On the final day of the show, Saturday, June 13th, there will be a more in-depth artist talk from 3-4pm. All are welcome to attend!
Have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!
