You are invited to the 15th Annual LMU Family of Schools Art Exhibit and Student Awards Program, taking place this Sunday at LMU. This is the first year that Short Avenue has been invited to participate, and art teacher Sandrine Klein did an amazing job guiding all of our 3rd graders and 5-5/6 grade students to create art to submit to the exhibit inspired by the theme The Resilience of the Human Spirit.
Our students’ beautiful work is on display at the William H. Hannon Library at LMU through Friday February 20. The library is open to the public 11am through 8 pm Saturday and Sunday, 8am-10pm on Monday and Tuesday next week, and then 8am-5pm next Wednesday through Friday. Parking is free on the weekends.
The art class lesson for this project was based on the resilience of the Huichol who survived through the sacred spirit of the amazing Artwork they have been creating. Ojo de Dios by the children of Short Elementary school is in honor of all the Huichol artists! It is a unique form of mandala weaving that originated from both Huicholi natives of Mexico and Tibetan lamas.
