I have to be honest, I am in awe at the talent coming out of the art department at Highlands High School. I have a hard time drawing a straight line with a ruler so when I see these pieces I am so impressed with the depth and skill of the artists.

Teachers were allowed to submit several pieces to Xavier and then, says art teacher, Kristine Donnelly, “a jury of professional artists chose which ones met the standards to be in the show. ’Juried’ shows are considered more prestigious.”
