We put up an annual show of work K to 12th in either the junior high library
or the senior high gym. We are fortunate to have release time (sub hired for
a day) to set up the show. I bring along the art honor society members who
help with set up. The show is up for 2 to 3 days during the time of our
musical so it is truly a celebration of the arts. This all occurs at the
beginning of May.

We use all wall space and cover with paper from 36" rolls. We use tritex
glue in the four corners of the work to attach it to the large papers (If you
put a flat piece of masking tape in each corner, the glue easily rubs off and
doesn't hurt the work.) The large papers are then taped and glued to the
walls. In addition, we have some free standing display boards. The senior
art III students each set up a "one man show" in the larger show.

When it is take down time, I have each individual class take down their own
works and take them home. This avoids the worry of damaging the works by
