General McLane High School students had some fun with art.

After studying work by street artist Mark Jenkins, who places dressed tape sculpture bodies in cities across the world, the students in Mrs. Thompson’s second quarter Art Introduction class created one of their own.

The purpose of the exhibit was to explore how an environment can influence the choices artists make when designing art to be placed in a particular space. The class was split into groups that came up with their own idea for the exhibition space. Students then voted on their favorite idea and split into teams to complete the project. The students in this class demonstrated excellent collaboration skills which, Mrs. Thompson said, prompted her to do this project with them.

Awesome job students!
