Mesmerizing is one of many words to describe this year's Third Annual District Art Show. More than 350 beautiful pieces of art, from pencil sketch to sculpture, were on exhibit.
New to the mix this year were the Little Elm High School Graphic Design and Photography classes. The students' works were on display, which increased the number of pieces to the exhibit. As about 400 visitors viewed the show, the LEHS Culinary students were working to keep the refreshment table fully stocked with homemade goodies straight from their culinary lab.
"Our students amaze me with their creativity. We have extremely talented artists at all of our campuses," said Daniel Gallagher, superintendent. "It is evident from the works on display that our art teachers are creating rigorous and complex lessons that are having a tremendous influence on our students." he said.
Gallagher, along with his leadership team, carefully considered which 50 art pieces would receive the "Favorite Pick" medals. "It is so hard to choose, because they are all deserving of a medal," added Gallagher.
The Art Show is in its third year and would not be what it is today without the hard work of all the art teachers on staff. They have planned for months for the event. "We will continue to add works each year as well as showcase new visual arts electives classes," said Michelle Davis, art teacher and art show coordinator. "The caliber of works gets more sophisticated each year. As teachers, we are inspired by each other's lessons. We collaboratively look for new and fun ways to introduce techniques and artists."
