Students in Art Portfolio and C Block Foundations of Art had a special treat today. Jack Walsh visited the classroom and shared his art with us. Mr. Walsh specializes in bottle etching and found-object sculptures. He talked about the process of etching bottles from start to finish, which includes mastering a variety of tools and materials from sandblasters, ultraviolet films and polymers to design software applications and paints.
