The Art II Class is currently working on their Collage Decoupage Umbrella projects. Art II students discovered that the universal symbol for the umbrella is “Shelter and/or Protection”.  With this thought in mind, students are now in the process of drawing and/or collecting images from magazines and online  which reflect “shelter”. Images are to be glued to their umbrellas, where upon completion will be exhibited in the Alpena High School Library. 

*Come see the Alpena High School Art Show which begins on Thursday, March 15  in the Alpena Cafeteria.
