This is the sixth straight year that attendance topped 10,000 in what has become one of the region's largest student art shows. 

Nearly 5,000 students displayed  both two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces of artwork, including drawings in pencil, pen, marker, oil pastel, soft chalk pastel, ink, mixed media, and paintings in tempera, acrylic and oil.

The show also featured traditional and digital photography, short films, Public Service Announcements and video game design projects.

Displayed art included fibers ranging in functional fashion to weavings, relief and in-the-round sculptures, as well as, hand built to wheel-thrown ceramic vessels and pieces.

The show was held at Ewell Elementary.
