District Art Show

Among the many things to come of April was the district art show which made their grand reveal at the Shores on the 19th of the month.

The show, held in the auditorium lobby, had works of all kinds on display. From Rodgers to Masonic to Lake Shore, all schools within the district had their respective representative works showcased.

Among the many works brought to view came those of AP Studio Art students: Shana Stroster, Alayna Current, Lexi Vaughn, Ivan Skrtic, Katy Lundy, and Leslie Govea who presented their portfolios worth of work at the event. The portfolios comprised of two: the students breadth, and the students concentration. The first of which contained pieces whose intent was to show understanding and mastery of specific skills such as the ability to draw from life, good use of composition, or the imitation of classic styles such as French impressionism, realism, surrealism, etc. The concentration is an investigative study on a specific subject of choice which is researched and then represented in the students respective work. Concentration subjects varied from student to student. From the influence of underground culture on America and society as studied by Skrtic, to the ill-effects of religion as studied by Vaughn to the daily life of a girl in the 1800’s as studied by Lundy – variety didn’t lack.

Students chose the work they wished to enter in the best artwork competition; one piece was voted for each school (Masonic, Rodgers, and Lake Shore.)
