March 31 – April 9: NHS STUDENT IB ART EXHIBIT
This final exhibition is the culmination of the Northville High School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Art experience. The students present a selection of their best work in the form of a curated final show, and defend and articulate their purpose and intention in a written rationale.
In the program, students developed problem-solving skills and proficiency as artists by exploring and experimenting in a variety of contemporary practices and media. Learn more the NHS IB Program.
