Art Students Show Their Work at Fine Arts Festival

Art students displayed their work at the annual Spring Art Show in the Marian Center on April 23. Seniors and AP Art students each had a display board of multiple works. Work from the other classes was displayed throughout the center.

Students worked in a broad range of media, including oil and acrylic paint, watercolor, pen and ink, pencil, pastel, charcoal, and collage. Pieces included ceramics, landscapes, large self portraits, studies of fruit, and re-imagined books.

This year, in a new effort, the students collaborated with the Villa Maria Orchestra to create pieces to accompany a performance of “The Lark Ascending” by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Violin soloist senior Emily Ermer played on stage next to a projected slide show of the artworks.
