Jennifer Altmeyer of Huntingburg held her son Scott’s self-portrait as she and her daughter, fifth-grader Annaliece, admired the second-grader’s work at Huntingburg Elementary School’s first art show Tuesday. Students had their pieces displayed in the selfie-themed show and parents had an opportunity to buy the self-portraits for $10 as a fundraiser for the school’s art program. “To see how proud these kids are, it’s super moving,” said Ashley Rasche, Huntingburg Elementary’s art teacher. “I wish that everybody could see what they started out with at the beginning of the year, and where they are now. Because they are just improving, it’s absolutely outstanding.”
