Annual Creative Spotlight  |  kmccall@gisthailand.org

“Come rain, come shine, [come COVID-19], the show must go on!” The annual Creative Spotlight (formerly called the Art Show) is going completely digital this year in order to share the creative work of our students with each of you. We are putting together a Google Site where you can view student work from grades K-12. Save the date and stay tuned for the launch of our “show” on May 23rd!

To ensure the safety of each of our students, this website will only be viewable from a GIS email login. Therefore, in order to view the artwork, you will need your student to sign into their account and use the website link from there.
