St. Patrick School’s main hallway served as a temporary museum on May 11 as the school hosted its annual art show.

According to art teacher Alecia McCafferty, each student contributed at least three pieces to the extensive showcase. Students used all sorts of materials to bring their visions to life, from pencils and paint to clay.

“This is one of my favorite events because it is so wonderful to see the pride on (students’) faces as they walk through the halls and see their artwork on display,” McCafferty said. “They point out their pieces to their parents and grandparents, and there is so much happiness on their faces.”
