4th grader Iyanna Fisher had two pieces displayed in the exhibit, Sun and Moon Painting and Magic Tree.

“It took me about two weeks to complete my artwork,” said Iyanna.  “It was hard work, but I stayed focused and feel proud of myself,” she added.

The art gallery included self-portraits, symmetrical collages, paintings, photos of clay owls, and much more.  It also featured photos of the Arbor student artists in action.  The artwork was selected for creativity, concept design, neatness and effort.
