The NCPA art Department is proud to present the 2020 on-line art show! This art is a celebration of skill and emotion; featuring selected art works from each of our AP art students’ portfolios as well as work from all NCPA art courses. 2020 has brought unexpected trials and challenges, yet our students persevered and made exceptional art throughout the school year. We hope you will appreciate the talent and skill of our students as you explore their art.

The Grade 8 students made cultural connections in their project Islamic Pattern Design: Art meets Math.
