Under the supervision of art instructor Ginny Geoghegan, the Tomales High School art program remained a bedrock of creativity for students navigating the course of the past year’s unprecedented distanced learning ordeal.
With the support of the school staff, these art students flourished at home and continued to develop a pantheon of new artworks inspired by their individual experiences and growing identities.
