The hallways in Hannibal’s Fairley Elementary School were transformed into a French art museum Tuesday, May 20 during a school-wide art show.

In the spirit of the Paris theme, students in Jeannette Gillett’s art classes created their own “Mona Lisa” masterpieces, miniature Eiffel towers and similar works. They used a variety of art mediums to make their projects, which were on display — along with a light-up Eiffel Tower creation — in the hallways near the art classroom.

“Every grade made something based on the French art theme,” Gillett said. “We learned about different French artists and the projects were inspired by artists like Kandinsky.”

Parents had a chance to view the work from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday in conjunction with the school book fair.
