The Whitefield Annual Art Show was held on April 6. This celebration of the visual arts also included performances by our bands, orchestra, Lower School chorale, and Middle School drama students.

The judge for this year's art show was Kim Ford, a Lower School parent. She has been teaching visual art for 16 years and has a master's degree in art education. She is currently teaching children’s classes at the High Museum of Art and the Mable House in addition to teaching private lessons.

The student artwork was judged on technical skill, personal vision/style, and originality/creativity.
