COW-A-BUNGA! Student Artwork Gallery
Students in the Stevens Point Area Public School District had a mooooo-ving experience in art class recently. Their art teacher, Mrs. Pam Somers, showed her third and fourth grade classes how to draw a cow's face, then allowed her students to make their own color choices as they painted.

And now DBA is excited to share the outstanding art with you as well! View the gallery here.
