Visual Arts students present Student Art Showcase Monday, May 21 at LHS

Students at Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls will present an art showcase Monday, May 21. The show will include numerous departments within the arts including Visual Art, Band, Orchestra, Choir, Video Game Design, and Quilt Making. The night will start at 6 p.m. with an Art Show in the commons. Small performances will follow in the auditorium lobby, starting at 6:45 p.m. and the night will finish with an orchestra performance on stage starting at 7:30 p.m.
The art show will include a wide variety of excellent work done by students throughout the year. Advanced art students will be exhibiting numerous pieces. They are excited to present their portfolios and converse about their artistic visions, preferences and goals.
Video Game Design students will allow the public to play video games that they designed, created and programmed from scratch. Students have taken their idea from a story theme and then created characters, objects, and backgrounds that follow the rules they have created to create an interactive game of play. They will also be gathering feedback about their Beta release in order to help them improve their final project.
Band members will perform a variety of solo and small ensemble pieces that they have worked up throughout the year. Songs prepared include ones that were performed at our Section 8AA Solo Ensemble contest in addition to those prepared to perform at Valley Home and at the recent Kramer Brown Teacher Recognition Dinner. Preparing to perform as a soloist or as a member of a small group takes a different level of musicianship than performing in a large group, and students who take on this challenge are rewarded with greater confidence that transfers to all other areas of life.
Students from the Quilting Class will be displaying the quilts they made. Each student picked a pattern and their own fabrics. It’s interesting to note how different two quilts made from the same pattern can be when students get creative with color and print choices. Students used the tie method to quilt their creations.
Each area of the arts allows the students of Lincoln High School to find a place where they can showcase their individual talents, whether through visual art, creative technology, quilting, or music. The students are very excited to share their work with the community.
