Students formed groups to recreate symbolic silhouettes inspired by artist Kara Walker. Eighth-grade students study the Civil War in their core social studies class; power, race and gender are some of Walkers themes. Students studied Walkers techniques in Stiles art class. Stiles said she tries to show students the importance of becoming visually literate citizens despite budget cuts. - photo by Miciah Bennett
