Are you ready to celebrate the arts? Then come on out to the 2018 John Mills Art Show!

From 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, the school gymnasium will be filled with artwork from every John Mills student. Art teacher Mr. Todd Siegel has organized the event with the help of the Mills community.

Parents will have the option of buying their children's framed artwork, and families can participate of variety of art activities, including painting, sculpting, drawing — and sliming!

Meanwhile, check out these photos from one of Mr. Siegel's recent 4th-grade classes as his students put the finishing touches on pinch-pot monsters for the show. (Pinch pot is a form of hand-made pottery.)

Congratulations to all of our student artists!
