Leander ISD held their annual art exhibit on May 16 from 12-4 p.m. to show the artwork of all art students from the district. The artwork presented was from students in kindergarten through 12th grade and included paintings, drawings, sculptures and photos.

Throughout the year, students have been working on different projects to compete in certain competitions and to show people what they have accomplished throughout the year

“The district art show, to me, is one of the best events,” art teacher Thao Phan said. “I love seeing everything the students have done at the end of the year and how much they’ve grown.”

Leander’s art program is for students to have an outlet for creative expression, cultural awareness, and explore many different fine art options. Art students begin with an introductory course, then move on to more advanced art, ceramics, and media classes to enhance their artwork and gain new techniques for future art competitions, showings or classes.

“I love getting to test out new techniques that were taught,” Berry said. “You are given the chance to spread your horizons using the skills you learned about during the year.”
