2012 – 2013 School Year Theme:

This year, our theme is an investigation of Emergent Systems, ones in which many different elements interact. Each lesson plan and artist represented creates their art using fragments. All the pieces are brought together to build art that is bigger than the sum of its parts.

2012 – 2013 Tema del año:

Este año el tema es una investigación de Los Sistemas Emergentes donde muchos elementos interactúan. Cada plan de estudio y artist representado crea el arte usando fragmentos. Cuando se juntan todas las piezas termina siendo arte más grande que la suma de las partes individuales.
