Needham High School art classes spent Tuesday decorating the front areas of Needham High School with chalk drawings.
Needham High School students had a send off to home from the Cheshire Cat and ghosts from Pac-Man on Tuesday afternoon. As part of Needham High School's "Chalk It Up," artsy seniors from the Senior Studio class took to the streets--or at least the parking lot--to decorate the area. Patch stopped by with our cameras and snapped pictures of some of the works in progress. Students, if you got pictures of your creations which we missed, upload them here! If you posted your drawing, and want to let us know, tell us in the comments!
