A school year’s worth of creativity and hard work was on display at Washington Middle School last week for the school’s Fine Arts Show.

The work of the school’s sixth through eighth grade art students was featured at the event on May 20, giving WMS students, teachers and parents an opportunity to enjoy the students’ artistic accomplishments. The school’s band students performed at the event as well.

“The students have been working really hard this year, and the Fine Arts Show is a nice way to celebrate what they have accomplished,” stated WMS art teacher Gaby Naus in a news release.

The Fine Arts Show gave the WMS community an opportunity to view several different types of student artwork, including projects such as ceramics, painting, tile designs, drawings and basket weavings, according to the release. After observing the students’ artwork, attendees voted on their favorite piece, awarding eighth graders Anthony Donley, Alexis Johnson and Alex White the three “Best in Show” honors.
