The Art Show Theme for the 2019 Spring Semester is Oceans!
This semester in art we are learning about our beautiful oceans. We will be creating artwork inspired by whales, sea turtles, jelly fish, coral reefs, and much more. Students are already creating amazing, original works of art. Please join us at our spring semester art show in May to support our GES artists, and see all the incredible art for yourself! Doodle for Google Google is holding a contest for students to create a design around their homepage logo, with the theme: When I Grow Up, I Hope... Students are encouraged to create their original designs and submit them to Google by March 18, 2019. For more information, go to doodle4google.com.
