After the presentation, students will return to the high school to begin the studio portion of the evening. During the studio sessions, teachers and students will begin art making, including ceramics, drawing, weaving, painting, animation, and computer graphics. Many of the art works created during the evening will be auctioned at the Arts Expo. The Arts Night event is only open to students and is not open to the public.
