Studio Art students participated in an annual “ugly” sweater contest. Students created their own versions of “ugly” sweaters, to which they were then on display for faculty and staff to vote for their favorites. Categories included; Most Festive, Most Likely to Actual Wear, Most Ridiculous, Funniest and Most Original. LCS staff commented that students this year created the best sweaters then following years. It was a fun and festive way to get into the holiday spirit!

On Tuesday November 22, students in Studio Art had the privilege of attending a field trip to the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. While at the gallery students received a tour through the visiting Picasso exhibit. Students got to see some very famous pieces of art while learning about the interesting life of Pablo Picasso. After the private tour, students were free to explore the rest of the gallery with an assignment to find a piece of artwork that called to them. The piece they selected will be used in a future art lesson within the studio art class.
The studio art and photography students had the privilege of taking a field trip to Nazareth College to watch a special clay firing technique called Raku. Students in Studio Art created clay vessels and leaves through a grant project from Go Art. This grant allowed students to work closely with clay artist, Deborah Wilson. Ms. Wilson talked about her career, showed some of her own artwork and gave students tips and tricks for created clay sculptures. The student’s art teacher, Mrs. LeClair, reached out to her former clay professor at Nazareth College, to provide students with the opportunity to not only watch the outdoor raku firing of their clay pieces, but also take a tour of the college and watch a demonstration of throwing clay on a pottery wheel. The photography students came along on the trip to capture the process via a narrative story using photographs. It was a fun and successful trip and the finished pieces are spectacular. Great job and thank you to all involved for a wonderful time!
