CRESTVIEW — Walker Elementary School’s main hallway features students’ masterpieces for the first Spring Art Show. The school has been decorating the halls to celebrate art teacher Sarah Harris’s arrival.

Drawings and paintings from each teacher's class appear in the main hallway and in a portion of the school's media center, which facilitated a family night for a book fair.

The displays impressed second-grader Miranda Everhart, 7, who was attending the art show and book fair with her father, Tad. 

"I like the drawing and coloring; I like all of it," Miranda said, adding she looks forward to painting more.

Her father said he supports the arts program.

"It gives (students) a break from all of the math and science," he said. "It also helps with their imagination."

He’s not alone in his support.
