Most people know the Art Center as the gallery where local artists display and sell their art. You may not realize that our art instructor Ms. Sagawa also provides learning and opportunities for students at LHES. This is just a small sampling of student art from this past winter session. Besides the fact the arts encourage joyful, active learning, the arts help us to understand and express abstract concepts, and stimulates higher level thinking. Please help support the Arts!

LHS art teacher Lisa Galloway will host the winter sessions of “live” drawings. Amateur and experienced artists can gather together to draw people and/or objects that are “live” in front of them to improve their skills and create new artworks. Artists stand at easels and use a variety of paper and drawing materials like graphite, charcoal, and chalk pastels to draw a model or “still life” objects in front of them. A clothed model starts with many short poses then does a couple of long poses. After the model poses for 90 minutes, the artists may stay for up to 30 more minutes to finish their work and clean up.
Sessions will be held Thursdays, 4 – 6 PM, Jan 19, Jan 26, Feb 2, and Feb 9 at LHS art room T104.
If this is your first time, come to the first session 15 minutes early to talk with the instructor and get comfortable. Don’t expect to become an expert in a few hours, but do expect to see your abilities improve as you continue!
Cost is $20 for LAC members, $50 for non-members. All materials are included.
For more information, please contact the Art Center.

Ohe Kapala are bamboo stamps with intricate designs. These were used in ancient times to create repetitive patterns onto kapa. Using one stamp the artist could create hundreds of different designs. These designs played on both positive and negative space, creating patterns with even the unstamped portion of the design. Join us on Sat Oct 15 to make your own design. Bring your own fabric items or purchase at the workshop.
