Altered books, cardboard structures, Linoleum prints and ceramics are just a few student created projects in the Fine Arts classes.
In 2014 Digital Art classes took on a special project for Metro's 40th Anniversary. Students interviewed current and former Metro staff and Metro graduates about their experiences at Metro High School. Students managed the audio and video set up and put together interview ideas. These interviews were uploaded to YouTube, and can be viewed here. Thanks to all the interviewers and interviewees for being a part of this historic project.
