Students in Mrs. Katlyn Dorriety's sixth grade art classes at Walton Middle School have been learning about the history, elements, and techniques of the pop art movement. Students have studied the work of pop art greats, like Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Wayne Thiebaud, among others. During the recent unit, students even decorated the campus outdoor walkways with legal chalk grafitti, with images supporting the school's sports teams. Every student becomes an artist under Mrs. Dorriety's inspiring and skilled direction.
