Santa Clara High School arts teachers and students transformed the school’s small gym into an art gallery April 3 for the 10th Annual Day of the Arts Celebration honoring the arts and aspiring SCHS student artists. The temporary gallery included tables of ceramics and walls displaying several hundred photographs, paintings, drawings, digital art, and graphic designs. Original animations and videos could be viewed on computers. During the day, teachers brought classes of students to view the exhibit. Parents and students visited during an evening, school-wide open house for incoming freshmen.
“The arts are thriving at Santa Clara High School,” says Neil Woodman, chair of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.
