Pottery students this week are experimenting with a glaze reduction process and also exploring the imagery of art nouveau in their designs! They are doing a great job.
About 60 people attended our reception and Art Competition opening for parents and the public last night. Thanks to the LHS Library, Lakeland Booster Club, and principal Trent Derrick for their support of our shows and program.
Lakeland High School had over 200 submissions for this year’s Art Competition! Mason Miles, Curator at the infamous Art Spirit Gallery in downtown Coeur d’Alene will be judging tomorrow afternoon. The show opens tomorrow at the school and students and staff are invited to vote for People’s Choice Award. Over $500 in prizes will be given this week for students winning in the following categories: Portrait, Landscape/Outdoor Life, Fantasy/Abstract, and 3-D/Ceramics. Awards will be given in the spring at our school assembly. An open house and invites will be announced soon!!!!
Do you know what these are?? MOLDS! Ruth, who runs the Tunnel of Terror during Halloween donated hundreds of dollars in molds to the Lakeland Art Department last week and we went and got them. Beautiful works of art will emerge from these! If you see Ruth, THANK her! And speaking of donations, if you want to donate give us a call!
Vice Principal Mr. Hoffman visited the pottery room last Thursday during 6th hour and practiced his wheel throwing skills. He said it was fun, calming, and messy!
Lee Harris and her team have represented the United States for two years running at the Winnipeg, Manitoba snow sculpting festival. She will be working with LHS pottery students next week speaking about her life as an artist and how she accomplishes the beautiful artwork shown here. We are excited and busy getting ready for her visit next Tuesday and will be doing some snow sculptures of our own! More pictures to come.
