The Lake Forest Country Day School Visual Arts Department has been invited to participate in the annual Deer Path Art League’s Emerging Artist show at The Gallery in Lake Forest. The exhibit celebrates National Youth Art month and is designed to honor the creativity and hard work of young local artists.
This year, the LFCDS Visual Arts Department will display artwork from ten students from Grade 1 through Grade 8. Each piece was selected based on artistic merit and the student’s classroom efforts and objectives.
The students chosen to represent LFCDS with their 2D artwork are Winston Alley (Grade 1), Olivia Westin (Grade 2), Cooper Zuerlein (Grade 3), Jahstone Martin (Grade 4), Myles Haight (Grade 5), Evalyn Lee (Grade 7), and Hanna Cobin (Grade 8). Students chosen for their 3D artwork are Kaylie Jaster (Grade 6), Nate Wehner (Grade 6), and Emma Berti (Grade 6).
“LFCDS is honored to be included in this wonderful community-based art show,” said Visual Art Teacher Rhonda Venard-Darin. “At this show, our students have the unique opportunity to have a broader audience view their artwork in a professional venue.”
The Emerging Artists exhibit kicks off with an opening reception on Sunday, April 8 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at The Gallery for students, families, and faculty. The show is open to the public from Sunday, April 8 through Saturday, April 28, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The Gallery is located at 202. E. Wisconsin Ave, in Lake Forest.
“At LFCDS, we believe in educating the whole child with a robust and diverse curriculum,” said Mark DeBernardi, who teaches both visual and digital arts at LFCDS. “Our Fine Arts curriculum encourages students to find their artistic voice, cultivate creativity, and explore new perspectives.”
