2017 Regional Middle Level Art Show

The third and final of the three area school exhibits is now showing in the lobby of the Core Building at SJC. As I entered the lobby, I instinctively tilted my camera to take a picture of the optical collages from North Newton students
 This colorful and well drawn peacock had a big gold sticker that indicates that the judges liked it a lot. It was from a student at KV.
 Using a marker and watercolor, a student at DeMotte Christian School did this design that also merited a big gold sticker.
 I did not recognize what the point of this work was until I read the caption. It is a Piet Modrian inspired animal and there were a number of other items from the same assignment given to Rensselaer students. (The Modrian part of this is the design of the giraffe's spots.)
 Faces are hard to draw so I am always impressed with a well-drawn face.
 There is a lot of detail in these colorful hands.
The show runs until April 9, the day of the Awards Ceremony.

Yes, I need to go out to see them. Was there and forgot to look. Love what you shared.
