Tracy Lee Stum, one of the country’s leading 3D street artists, created the image while students watched. Earlier in the day, she talked to small groups and explained the concepts behind 3D art and perspective drawing.


Art teacher Tiffany Weaver has been inviting artists to the school to help students understand how varied the art world can be. Paintings and photographs of each artist’s work is added to the school’s new gallery in the Media Center.
