West Art on Display at Spectacle Lake


Ms. Perry has put up three frames of HWHS art work in the lobby of the HRSB building at Spectacle Lake and sent enough work to fill three more. Our student work will be on display there until the end of the school year.

HWHS has been invited to and has committed to displaying student work at the Keshen Goodman Library during the month of January 2016. We’re looking for submissions of recent student work. Please consider and submit work to Ms. Perry in B327, prior to December 10th 2015.

Continue to check out the visual arts display hall on the third floor. We’re frequently putting up new artwork, and showing off the brilliant creativity our HWHS students. We appreciate the audience 😉
