    Art is taking the spotlight at Jordan Elementary, where students had the opportunity to showcase their work in the school's inaugural Young Artists' Showcase.

    More than 100 pieces of student art are on display in the school's hallways. From clay projects and sculptures to drawings and animations, all types of art are represented. A panel of judges, which included JES administrators, employees and a student, voted for their favorites to decide the Best in Show for each grade.

    "We had a huge turnout from our artists," said JES art teacher Elizabeth Galaher. "It was a chance for them to showcase art they either made in class or at home."

    Galaher has big plans for next year.

    "I would like to have an official art crawl with a gallery opening on the same night as our school's choir concert," she said. "It'll be almost like our own fine arts festival."

    This year's showcase will be on display through May 11.
