For the months of November and December, the Lansing community is invited to stop by the Lansing Community Library to view a series of artwork by Lansing High School students. The artwork, which will be on display during library business hours, focuses on drawing media experiments from 10th
-grade students at LHS. Artwork on display consists of a variety of mediums, as the class began with students trying out a variety of different materials and techniques with these materials. These materials included pen, chalk pastel, graphite, colored pencil, and blendable marker. From here, their work began to take form.
“The students assessed their own strengths and determined areas that needed growth,” said LHS Art Teacher Clarissa Loomis. “Each student chose a new or challenging medium or technique to improve during this project. They then came up with a concept and composition that would best show off this growth. This resulted in a variety of artworks that capture students’ interests, concerns, and artistic skills.”
Students worked on their projects throughout a half-year course at LHS, which allowed them to better focus on building their observational drawing skills. Be sure to stop by the Lansing Community Library to see some of their excellent work!
