Photo Gallery: Sights from the 5th Annual Art Show

RBHS art students took the phrase “the sky’s the limit” a little further this weekend.

At the annual art show on Sunday, April 22, students displayed their projects they have worked on throughout the school year. Walls throughout the main hallway were plastered with artwork done by art students ranging from the foundational to the highest Advanced Placement (AP) arts classes.

With a flight theme intertwined through the event, visions of skies and illusions of walking on clouds gave visitors a whimsical feeling as they analyzed artwork.

As visitors walked into the main commons, they entered the art show through a vivid display of the show's theme, making them feel as if they were walking through the clouds. Handmade, paper kites seemed to fly around guests as they entered the art show.Upon arrival, art show viewers received a pamphlet with information about the senior artists who displayed pieces in the show.
