"The Visual Arts Department at Wichita Falls High School defines art as, ‘The risky discovery and development of basic principles of nature, skillfully rendered into beautiful forms suitable for human use.'  We feel that art is a risky discovery… a discovery of style, technique and most importantly, of oneself.

As art educators, we feel that a student’s understanding and success at manipulating art principles and creative problem solving in class are directly related to more creative ways to solve problems after high school. A student that skillfully and willing to truthfully explore, will almost definitely be successful in life. This series seemed to evolve from the uncertainty of our current situation.

Almost every aspect of our daily lives in and out of the classroom has been disrupted in some way. Almost nothing is ‘the way it used to be.’ The visual arts students at WFHS have adapted to the new situation and absolutely thrived in creating the new works included in this exhibition." ~ Wichita Falls High School Art Department
