Students enrolled in the Prep for Life special education program at Calhoun High School displayed their mastery of 2-D and 3-D art during an art show for an appreciative board of education and administration.
For the past two years, the students have worked with teachers Nancy Scott (Art I) and Heather Lohr (Art II) on developing a portfolio of works including animal portraits, impressionist landscapes, free form sculpture, opposite op art, past to present pop art and relief sculptures. These finished products were not only displayed on hand, but were presented in the form of a digital portfolio.
“The students transitioned so well from 2-D to 3-D art and digital work and will now have digital portfolios to take with them,” Lohr said. “None of this could happen, however, without the support of the district and the students’ families.”
