Above, senior Maranda Smith showed her mom, Janet, a thread art peacock she created for her 3D Design class. The class is one of many taught by Lisa Joseph at Romeo High School. At right top, Logan Christensen stands proudly with his owl painting, which was one of the favorites at the show. He is a first-grader at Indian Hills Elementary. At right bottom, Christina Weymouth, a 10th-grader, stands with her project from her Computer Graphics II class.
