One of the most overlooked halls hosted an open house on May 10.

“It’s important because it allows the public to see the complete works of students that attend K-building,” photography teacher Craig Godderz said.

The open house was open to everyone in the community, as well as students and parents.

“K-Hall open house is just meant to be a celebration of all hands-on activities that the kids do out in K-hall,” said Natalie Brown, the advanced clay wheel and sculpture teacher. “… We also have other teachers (who) will check out, too, and just a variety of people. But it’s open to anyone.”

The open house included various galleries, demonstrations, blindfolded wheel throwing, and color guard and AFJROTC maneuvers.

The 2022 open house was strictly the art classes because of Covid-19. But this year, they opened it back up to all of the K-Hall classes.

“All the rooms are involved from ROTC, Robotics, shop, industrial graphics, clay fundamentals. We have photography, airbrush, drawing and painting,” clay teacher Renee Fritts said.

Fritts had “Sculpt a Panther” demonstrations in her room.

“I liked the sculpt a panther, because it was hands-on and I got to work with clay,” freshman Suraya Khan said.

Most of the people who attend the event are families of students in the classes.

“Some of my pieces are here, and I just like participating in it, just like showing up, get to see other people’s art and just kind of gather ideas,” junior Cooper Finney said.

The photography room was popular with lots of pictures displayed and being able to go into the dark room.

“There was one photography piece of the Golden State bridge in the photography class that was particularly very interesting,” sophomore Ethan Jefferys said.

Clay Sculpture class worked on glass mozambiques that were on display in Brown’s room.

“I have a mozambique, made of glass. I am pretty proud of it,” Gleave said.

The wood shop had demonstrations and let people drill through aircraft sheet metal.

“I had a family who came in and the first sister tried the rivet station, and so she drilled the holes and bucked the rivets,” industrial teacher Ruth DeLange said.
